That's a great find!

I'm not sure how it applies here (geometry doesn't seem to figure in the same 

My feeling is that if you can get a set of n sines for some n and offset, even 
if they're all irrational but in rational ratios to each other, then you can use 
a big enough k to multiply up the common ratio denominator and get an all 
integral solution outside the 1,2,3,4,6 restriction.

Physically, adding enough energy to uncover rare cases.

But perhaps I'm not seeing the strength of the restriction.
