A related question, if a contact's state rests on something that is
guaranteed to have a definite solution, but producing that solution
computationally intractable, is there a mechanism for resolving that? It
isn't paradoxical or indeterminate, it's just that we don't have the
ability to determine the correct game state. (I'm reminded of the SHA-512
hash proposal)

I found the answer, contracts can only amend themselves by
announcement (meaning my original contract there made does not work).

I think contracts can only act by announcement, which seriously makes
me wonder how I'm going to get all my assets back.
