Dependencies: #20461, #20462 Stopgaps:


The '_variables' attribute dictionary maps a "variable" (an "element" of a MIPVariable "dictionary") to an index in the backend. This is redundant because these "variables" are elements of type LinearFunction, and as such know their index in the backend already.

sage: p = MixedIntegerLinearProgram(solver='GLPK')
sage: pv = p.new_variable(nonnegative=True)
sage: pv[0]
sage: pv[77]
sage: pv[0].dict().keys()
sage: pv[77].dict().keys()

Needs a rebase. However, I'm worried this could cause a speed regression as a dict lookup is a system python call whereas you are now doing a number of python function calls. Also storing a (relatively?) small dict doesn't cost much memory I would think.

I haven't done any timings regarding this patch.
