Brute force. Loop over integers, construct the subsequences, see if
all the divisors are there somewhere. I tried a couple of
well-aren't-I-clever? moves, but the answer was consistently "No"..
Unfortunately this sequence doesn't easily yield to the standard
constructions for quickly generating digit-string sequences (not in
the time I spent thinking about it, anyway) because of the many, many
ways divisors can hide. Easy to find a smallish example, very hard to
show it's the minimum.
