I love Mathematica, but there just is no good reason for an OEIS sequence
entry to be "See Mathematica program for definition."

Currently, there are 28 entries with "Mathematica" in the Name field. Some
of these might have a valid reason IF we agree that there is such a thing as
the "Mathematica order of partitions."

Ignoring those leaves about five sequences where the name is something like
"See Mathematica code for definition." I think we should change those to
something a little more meaningful.
