I can post 'em...  but I really think WAC has become an antique...  it
is too easy.  The only problem I don't see any way of solving without
full singular extension algorithm I used in Cray Blitz is wac230.
simply won't see this one.  The other 299 are not that difficult.  If we
set a 10 second limit and toss out the ones that can be found there, we
end up with maybe 15 or so...

I'm working on the ECM suite, which is way too big.  But I'm going to
up with a hard but not impossible suite of around 300 positions that
be a good suite for a while...
