new timings
sage: from sage.combinat.designs.latin_squares import MOLS_table sage: %time MOLS_table(30) ... CPU times: user 11.2 s, sys: 20 ms, total: 11.2 s Wall time: 11.2 s
old timings
sage: from sage.combinat.designs.latin_squares import MOLS_table sage: %time MOLS_table(30) ... CPU times: user 12.1 s, sys: 28 ms, total: 12.1 s Wall time: 12.1 s
Approximately one second to compare Sage infinity to an integer... WTF!

I've come across this before; it has something to do with the comparisons involving coercions IIRC. The nice thing is that it works exactly like an infinity:
sage: float('inf') == oo True

...... and it has not been implemented in Sage, so there is some hope that it is somehow efficient _

This ticket has a dependency in needs review... so it has to wait.
