To my bemusement, the "winning" patterns are very simple and regular. As if you could have an oracle that sets "weasel" as the target without knowing the target string.

Yes, the fitnesss function 'smuggles in' something about products! 4x4 is bigger than 3 x 5, 2 x 6, 1 x 7 ... which is, for example, why equal masses give a higher gravitational force (proportional to m1 x m2) than any asymmetric distribution of the same total mass (actually, the cause is the unequal distribution of individual atomic interactions, but proportionality to m1 x m2 is the mathematical result).

So settling on same-sized runs with 1-bit separators maximises the product.
