With this question in mind I compiled with owl threats and
ran the regressions.

The owl threats does poorly on the regressions and has no
effect on thrashing.tst. I didn't see any crashes.

Unfortunately Thi's current scheme requires you to load
his own personal modifications to Emacs just to run
gnugo. His instructions are to download a huge directory
of Elisp files and install it.

The upside is that you should be able to get
a nice graphical Go board. The gtp_examples/gnugo.el
is based on his earlier work but was never finished.
There are problems with cursor movements as I recall.
(I think you couldn't move the cursor to the bottom
row, and he didn't reply to e-mails about this after
the first reply that he was going to fix it.)

The interface/emacs.el works well but just gives an
ascii board. It would be very desirable to fix
