More than 4 million possible configurations!

The nature of the beast makes it harder. You'll remember than in previous cases, an exact figure was given, so that we were able to determine that the number failed to factor to 2^n for any n (or even 2^n * p^n for any prime p, if I remember correctly).

In this case, the number given is vague, preventing any such analysis.
