I've put up a minor revision of this patch at:

This is a variation of the patch inge_1_146.1. It differs in that it
rejects a move that can be captured unless that move happens
to be atari. The rationale is that if the move can be captured
the move capturing it *might* be a defense. On the other hand
if it can't be captured, since it is known that it threatens
at least two strings, it is sente and there is a good chance
that even if it doesn't work it creates good aji.

I'm running the regressions now. It doesn't break anything
in atari_atari.tst, and it rejects the bogus move at move
146 in viking2.sgf while finding the correct one.
