I'm not at all sure how common a problem this is (abrupt dragon status
changes).  Will a separate program catch enough examples, or do we want
the development version to spit out sgf files in normal play for
submission as bug reports?

It looks like I can figure out how to create a separate program.  Is there
some other simple GTP client I can build off of, or will I need to write
the GTP interface from scratch?

Do you need my assignment of copyright in other than electronic form?
