You could join the All BASIC forum and start a Processing thread.
I just reviewed your Python results again and noticed that like V7 the greater the recursion the more in the toilet it goes. Too bad V8 is C++. It looks fast.
I downloaded V8 and might take a shot at trying to integrate it with AIR's JADE C++ version of C BASIC.
What a nightmare trying to round up the dependencies to build V8. I took a peek at a couple samples and C++ isn't my cup of tea. I'm going to stay the V7 route for now.
