I suspect it has to do with the search space. On an OR-cascade (PartitionedEQ),
as soon as one bit equals one, the result becomes independent of the other
bits, and the search tree can be pruned. With an XOR-cascade (PartitionedXOR)
there is no such opportunity, it must follow every branch.

In other news: the proof driver now can also handle operations which give
arithmetic outputs. Addition and subtraction (without carry-in or out) passes.
