I am not sure.  Chess 4.x was the first incremental move generator program I
knew of.
Dark Thought followed that idea.  I chose not to as I wanted to try to do a
better job of
move ordering which means I need a set of moves to look at, rather than
generating one
and going with that.

Note that I am not saying this idea is good or bad.  I initially didn't want to
try it because
I knew how to order a normal move list.  But it certainly should be tried by
anyone doing
bitmaps...
