Competing Interests

We have appointments at X, which is part of Alphabet; this is the same parent company that owns Google’s quantum-computing division, where the second and seventh authors work. Additionally, the authors described their results to us in a video meeting, after the paper had been through one round of review, and we gave general feedback; they have acknowledged this input in their paper.
