Because I'm STOOOOPID.
It's really easy to invert the meaning of things, and look at the inverse of a
After watching the relevant portion and paying very careful attention to the all
to brief explanation, I did a few experiments that highlighted the issue, and
let me unravel everything so that I now have proper, algorithm-correct,
fully-internally-connected mazes.

Here's 100 by 100.  I've already tried a 500 x 500, which is 250,000 cells, and
it works, but I'd have to render it a bit bigger than usual to have it show up
