The task of recognizing seki doesn't belong in reading.c but
in the semeai module.

The plan is that owl_analyze_semeai will soon be able to recognize
seki reliably. Currently I'm working on seki but postponing the
issue of ko. When we start to support ko, the type of the
functions owl_analyze_semeai and do_owl_analyze_semeai will change
from void to int.

Check out the examples in regression/semeai.tst. Many of these
positions are seki. The tests all pass but the last two examples
(based on the top position in semeai9.sgf) will fail if you replace
tactical_analyze_semeai by owl_analyze_semeai because of a
spurious amalgamation.
