I'm glad to hear that.

Your tuple restriction "not-same-time" affects all tuples with the same
subject, not just the tuple with this restriction. It would be better if
you would make this a subject restriction - tuple restrictions are
expected to affect only tuples they are used on.

Also I believe your example in the module documentation should look like

<subject title="MATH_LAB" teacher="Cronin" perweek="1">
        <restriction type="not-same-day">MATH_FIRST Cronin</restriction>

At the moment I don't see how you could make your grade function faster.

pnt pointer isn't pointing to the first period of the first day for the
second teacher after the inner loop is finished. It is pointing to the
first period of the last day for the first teacher. You should add
"pnt+=PERIODS" after the inner loop.
