i would say that such an engine would be a separate project. i'll
never believe (unless you prove it with files ;) that we can keep
it together with gnu go as it is now and just split them with
`configure' when compiling.

i dread to think of gnu go going to run only on "expensive hardware".
i strongly believe _this_ project must never go that way.
