Thanks for your efforts on this project. I'm actually more
interested in using your earlier solution, since it is so much
faster. Right now, the magic square code rises in runtime from 1.5
seconds to 4 hours with an increase of 1 in the square's dimension.
I would much rather use a technique that had a more linear (or even
I would propose modifying the other entries (since there are only a
handful) to match the output of your original solution.
What do you think?
