I do too...  but what does a move generator do?  Some update incremental stuff
(we did in Cray Blitz).  Some don't.  So they have to compute that stuff

I don't see how to "prove" this without re-writing my program without bitmaps,
which I
am not willing to do.  Otherwise, comparing two programs is not apples to
apples, ever...

I think you are right.
