  Sudoku example.

  The Sudoku board is a 9x9 grid, which is further divided into a 3x3 grid
  of 3x3 grids.  Each cell in the grid must take a value from 0 to 9.
  No two grid cells in the same row, column, or 3x3 subgrid may take the
  same value.

  In the MIP formulation, binary variables x[i,j,v] indicate whether
  cell <i,j> takes value 'v'.  The constraints are as follows:
    1. Each cell must take exactly one value (sum_v x[i,j,v] = 1)
    2. Each value is used exactly once per row (sum_i x[i,j,v] = 1)
    3. Each value is used exactly once per column (sum_j x[i,j,v] = 1)
    4. Each value is used exactly once per 3x3 subgrid (sum_grid x[i,j,v] = 1)

  Input datasets for this example can be found in examples/data/sudoku*.
