Since you seem to have taken your "example" from the documentation of 
the Imtek`ExactCover` function, available at

it is not clear why you would not use it as it is? Dis you try it? Did 
you face any difficulty or get any erroneous results? What would you do 
with such a function? Perhaps solving the Latin Square Puzzle or the 
Height Queens Puzzle?
