As an afterthought, this approach does not work when ff1 is zero :) duh

But then, I don't think that it's ever useful to have ff1 be zero, is it?
Also, I was wrong about the zeros, when ff1 is zero.

"Now, there's one free variable remaining, ff1.  ff1 could be zero,
which would give us a zero at z=0 and another real valued zero at

There is no zero at z=0.  I'm not sure about this one--but it seems as
though it's impossible to have a zero at z=0?
