You lost me with this phrase....

"each of which implements 90% of the  functionality of the other N-1,
but a different 90%"

"each of which implements 90% of the functionality of the other N-1"
parses in my mind as each one does pretty much the same as all the
others.  But they you say "but a different 90%" and that causes my mind
to enter an infinite loop.
