Subject: Qsearch survey

I just would like to see how other engines do in similar position. So, feed the
position (1.e4 e5 2.d4 d5) to your engine, perform a 10 ply search and report
the number of nodes and qnodes. To make sure we count nodes identically, this is
what I do: I increase nodes if I don't call qsearch() from search() and I
increase qnodes in the beginning of qsearch(). Like this:

search()
{
 if(depth<=0)
   qsearch()
 nodes++;
.
.
}

qsearch()
{
 qnodes++;
.
.
}

Try to get similar counting scheme so figures are comparable. Here is the
position:
[d] rnbqkbnr/ppp2ppp/8/3pp3/3PP3/8/PPP2PPP/RNBQKBNR w KQkq - 0 1

And please tell if you use SEE or not. I'll post my results soon also.
