Actually it is one of the Mercury entries.  Entry 242, team "Busy Weekend"
was ranked about 40th in the performance round, which is quite suprising
because it didn't even implement all the optimizations suggested in the

It had quite a simple strategy, unlike Ralphs entry, where it tried a simple
optimization, verified that the before and after documents were the same and
then, tried the next simple optimization.  This was done until a fix point
was reached, unfortunately it looks like our fixpoint code was incorrect so
instead it kept running until time ran out.
