Subject: A story about NPS

Hi!

Once upon a time there was a funny creature called Nellie the NPS...

 If I remove SEE from my engine I get a 2x speed up in terms of NPS. This of
course results in an increase in number of nodes to be searched. Overall it
seems that with SEE the strenght is not much higher than without. The funny
thing is also that removing all futility pruning code results another increase
in NPS (about 2x-3x). It is likely that removing it also decreases the strenght.
 The point of this stupid message is that: DON'T MAKE ANY CONCLUSIONS OF
STRENGHT BASED ON NPS.

I have spoken...
