"lexicographically first" ist the greedy approach. Use the
smallest a(n) that satisfies the condition given a(1), ..., a(n-1).
And do not change it later. This is easy algorithmically.
"slowest increasing" here means that you accept a larger than greedy
a(n) if it is possible to get a smaller a(m) for a larger m>n.
This is more complicated algorithmically.
Please do not change the definition of A130011.
If you want to have a new sequence with the greedy approach,
please use a new A-number.
Best, Alois
