Though it might be interesting to make a different perft program where
repetition and material draws are not counted. Since the idea is to test the
move generator why not test everything?
One might also count checkmates, stalemates, e.p. moves, castle moves, capture
moves, checking moves, etc..

It would also be faster to find the error should one occur.
