And yet, Georges Perec wrote an entire novel with no e. It was translated to
English, with the constraint retained.

Yes, that's what gave me the idea. "A void", I believe it's called in english.

Though I think the hardest constraint I've seen is the one in the Mike Keith rewrite of "The Raven." It's long, but if I don't post it here, someone's
going to ask, so here goes:
                        -- Original: E. Poe
                        -- Redone by measuring circles.

This might be more impressive if I knew what you meant by "measuring circles"...
