I think that you may have overestimated the complexity of the problem. In about 5 hours, I coded, debugged, and documented a set of generator functions to solve the general formulation (including box limits) for three occupancy problems:
- unlabeled balls in labeled boxes,
- unlabeled_balls_in_unlabeled_boxes, and
(I will add labeled balls in labeled boxes, although this case is less interesting).
On the other hand, I agree with your comment that the general need for these has not yet been demonstrated. I will post my code to PyPI and we'll see what happens.
