 * Solve a puzzle, showing the steps taken by the puzzle solver.  The
 * puzzle is initialized from stdin.  The input file consists of triple,
 * one per line, whitespace separated, of the form:
 *
 * row column value
 *
 * where row, column, and value are in the range 1..9.
 *
 * This is specifically a test of the "ambiguous" sudoku clues contained
 * in puzzle4.txt.  Personally I don't feel that a set of sudoku clues
 * that require you to guess at a solution are legal, but I'm providing
 * this interface since Ghica van Emde Boas (author of another Sudoku
 * related class) raised the possibility.
