Lets reformulate that. I wouldnt publish results of a new idea which was only
tested in a rather weak (like my) engine. I would always try to implement it in
stronger engines (like crafty) as well. If it works in both, there might
actually be some merit in it.

Of course there are some ideas which can't be tested by simply stuffing them
into a program.
