Found to be solvable with moderate lookahead by valerie.

Is there an official definition of the difference between "moderate lookahead" and "deep lookahead"? It took quite a bit of lookahead, but I wasn't sure which one to call it.

I'm sure it's in the FAQ's somewhere, but Deep lookahead requires keeping 3 or so moves in your head, to decide whether a pixel is placed correctly. I prefer the save-and-solve method, so I can revert if I reach a dead end. :)
