Here's a lead on #113 via a 14G synthesis of a related still-life:

`x = 116, y = 39, rule = B3/S23`

Note that if the ship is replaced by a snake then the reaction actually makes #113:

`x = 30, y = 10, rule = B3/S23`

I've been trying to use this idea to solve #113 but I've been running into problems. Inserting the diagonal spark in 4G or less at generation 43 would solve it:

`x = 25, y = 34, rule = LifeHistory`

Alternatively if a 4G or 5G synthesis is found for the bottom junk that doesn't pass through where the snake is required to be then that should also solve #131. I was unable to find such a synthesis with popseq but maybe someone else with better tools can. Another option is synthesizing a modified version of that junk that evolves directly to produce a python rather than a long shillelagh. Possibly that method could solve #267 too.
