Nice idea! But I actually really need those "canonic rotations", since I'm
hashing them somewhere.
Do you really need the canonical rotation or just a hash that is invariant
I don't know of a solution to the former that is better than what you
already have but the latter is an easier problem: Find the minimum element.
Compute the hash of the rotated sequence for each occurrence of the least
common element. Add those hashes together or multiply them or some similar
operation. That's your hash that will compare equal for any rotation of a
