    Took me a *long* time to see the break-in, but once I placed the first digit it seemed to fall into place pretty quickly.

    I’m a bit curious if I was just slow to realize the beginning, or if I missed some trick… I suspect it was the former, though 🙂

    Really hard, mainly the break-in (only one tricky step afterwards.) Couldn’t see how to do it without some mini-bifurcation…
