The sequence is missing "undecillion" (10^36), "vigintillion"
(10^63), "unvigintillion" (10^66) and a whole host of other numbers
that come before "two" in reverse alphabetical order.
Not to mention that we'd have to go throught all the "vigintillion
one", "vigintillion two", ... "viginitillion nine hundred ninety nine
novemdecillion ...", for each "illion" that we're missing.
This sequence should probably be deleted.
