Using the slices mask to rotate the entire puzzle should not count as a
twist. MC4D detects these cases and records the move as its equivalent
rotation, instead of as a twist.

I agree that this is getting very interesting! How long before we see
our first full 3^7 solution? I’m guessing not long at all. Will this be
the first time in the entire universe? I don’t think that it’s crazy to
think that it might.
