Raymond Boute solved the puzzle by first encoding it in FunMath notation; to see what that looks like, click here. Please send comments to raymond dot boute at pandora dot be.
Christian Schulte and Gert Smolka used the puzzle as an example of a problem solvable with the Oz language; I used to have a link to their solution, but unfortunately "http://www.mozart-oz.org/home/doc/fdt/node38.html" no longer works. If you know how to contact Christian or Gert, please let me know!
