Re: Soup-based syntheses

Seems like the Average Cost column in the LifeWiki table by bit count is going to go out of date fairly regularly, but I think the max costs are correct for now. Maybe the 5G search will eventually manage a similar trick for 11 bits, though; there are already only half a dozen expensive 7G recipes ...
