First step: I have removed the dependency on Structures_LinkedList in
favour of the native SplDoublyLinkedList. All tests are passing, and I
think I closed a few long-standing corner cases as well...
Per PEAR rules, I have pushed File_MARC 0.8.0 beta. If a few hardy

know if it all looks good, then I'll proceed with 1.0 stable on
