I don't buy it.  Sure we might find a shorter one sooner but if we need
to test all possible cases why would the intelligent exhaustive search be
quicker with fewer marks?  We know for sure that a marks + 1 ruler will
be longer than the marks ruler we just verified for sure.  Though I suppose
the space between say ogr 23 proven and ogr 24 best known could be more
than the proven shortest 24 and the best known 25.
