Hey all,

Nice job with the monoflip, Marc! I love seeing the wall of macro buttons
on the side there. Do you know if it’s feasible (and worthwhile) to do a
gyro move using your ROIL set? Certainly a quick *Iy Oy’* could suffice if
the rest of the cube doesn’t need to be preserved.

The *Iy* macro looks like RKT-ified F2 U2 R2 F2 U2 y2 z (equivalent to (F
B) R2 U2 B2 R2), which is a very bizarre algorithm. I’ll try not to use it
too heavily in solves, but once or twice seems reasonable. Interestingly,
performing *Iy Oy’* on the virtual puzzle corresponds to the 4-move
sequence Ro2 Uo2 Bo2 Ro2, when I would have expected something more
analogous to RKT algorithm.
