```Notice that there is also a way to enter coefficients of polynomials in
infinite number of variables without referring to partitions.
This is what I call prime factorization order:

For n with the prime factorization n = p1^k1 * p2^k2 * ..., where p1=2,
p2=3, ... are the primes in their natural order (so only a finite number of
ki are nonzero),
we let a(n) be the coefficient of u^k1 * u^k2 * ....

E.g., multinomial coefficients C(k1+k2+...; k1, k2, ...) arranged this way
