Would it be easier if the fields were signed? It's fragile and odd to
explain "these are unsigned but if they underflow they behave just like
signed when added" when they can just be signed. Also, I have a hard time
understand what "preempt" means above.

So, this is calculating the budgets to carry over. Can we name them
accordingly? I don't know what "skipped" means.

So, the code seems to make sense but the field names and comments don't
really, at least to me. I can't find an intuitive understanding of what's
being skipped. Can you please take another stab at making this more
understandable?

Thanks.
