Yeah?  Does it still work?

Since the GIST code is not tested by any standard regress test, and is
so poorly documented that hardly anyone can be using it, I've always
assumed that it is probably suffering from a severe case of bit-rot.

I'd love to see someone contribute documentation and regression test
cases for it --- it's a great feature, if it works.
