Zig clearance formula

People - I've had a go at putting down the basic steps needed to clear a zig, without going into too much detail, so that someone who's never cleared one before (like me until a few days ago) can get a rough idea of the right strategy.

Actually, while I'm here, I may as well thank all the devs for this superb game. Can't believe it's free. "Crawl is a lake from which a gnat may drink, and in which an elephant may bathe" (said about chess, but applies just as well to crawl)

Whoever came up with Barachians - thank you. They are awesome. Great to have a controlled blink (almost) that you can use when silenced / drained / sapped / teleport-restricted.
