Searching backwards is not that hard, and yes I know about it and
consider it important. (I'm sure others remember how much time I spent
making sure NUT could seek backward sanely...) Start by scanning back
a reasonable initial interval, then increasingly large intervals as
you fail (a sort of binary-search-to-minus-infinity).
