That's why I want to switch to all text in font OCR-A with a 2-D
barcode. That approach is modular and flexible. Right now, we have
non-machine readable text and a 1-D barcode. Those of you who want
to extend the demo, please feel free. I want new code written from
scratch based on what we learned.
