moin lsw,

pretty cool, especially since it has next to no dependencies (unlike
[gfsm], which needs glib and of course libgfsm ;-)  Any chance of adding
some AT&T-style I/O routines for compatibility?  That way, users could
easily switch back and forth between [gfsm_automaton] and [fsm]
representations by bouncing the data over the filesystem (ugly but
portable), so you could get visualization with dot, regex compilation,
markov chain generation, weighted transitions, etc. etc. ...
