It took a while to find a pattern which could be transformed 16

different ways. Still trying to find a pattern which will

result in 4 distinct ways, but I am not optimistic. A random walk

through the cube resulted in a pattern which would transform

48 ways in every case I tried.

For well over 99% of the positions we have |{m'Xm}|=48, so it will

be a long time before a random walk finds anything. If my quick

and dirty calculations are correct, |{m'Xm}|=48 for in excess

of 99.9999986% of the M-conjugate classes. For positions themselves,

the percentage would be higher still.
