    As a side note, I took inspiration from a post the other day about adding AoC badges to your repository README file. I use GitLab, which lets you define badges as properties of your repository. So I added badges to my repository's header area, driven by a JSON file in the repository. The JSON file is updated manually by a script. (I might add some automated updates at some point, but manual works okay for now.)

    Probably overkill, because I parsed the instructions into instances of my point class. I tend to default to that for coordinates nowadays (as opposed to just using complex numbers) because it generically extends to arbitrary numbers of dimensions. Just in case.

    The code is here: It's in Common Lisp. There are quite a few hacks, copied-and-pasted code, and other blemishes. Toward the end, I just wanted to get something done, even if the code didn't turn out pretty.

    For part two, I first tried rewriting my code with a circular list structure I wrote for Advent of Code 2018 day 9 (Marble Mania). I figured the mutable circular list implementation would be more performant. It was, but nowhere near enough.

    For the seats, I stored points in an FSet map. Past Advents of Code have taught me that a dictionary lookup is more flexible than a two-dimensional array (though the 2D array would have sufficed for this problem). I used my own point library; although complex numbers work quite well for 2D points, my library generalizes better to higher dimensions.
