    2525> Also updated.  The waiver parameter is meant to be user-facing; it's purpose is to suppress a warning raised when the input parameters can't be checked computationally for cases that don't hang.  This situation can occur when the user specifies an arbitrary function for the floor and ceiling parameters, so the purpose here is to verify that the user has thought carefully about what they are asking the algorithm to compute.

    27 I wonder about that... Instead of letting the code hang, wouldn't it be better to first "explore a bit the floor/ceiling parameters" ? If you see that up to 10^10 all the values of ceiling do not sum to n, then say that something is wrong straight away?
