I'm planning on programming SEE into my program today. I'd like to know whether
I "should" (well, of course I can do anything I want but) prune all losing
captures in qsearch or search them (after the good ones)? And what about equal
captures? What I mean is that if I prune, I get a speedup, but I lose a lot
positional info if that particular losing capture leads to (say) passed pawn or
similar. What do you do?
