Subject: MTD(f), Quiscient Search, and hashing Quiscient nodes

Hello All,

Just finished writing a simple Quiscient Search function, using MVV/LVA...

Now, previously my engine was using MTD(f) to power it. This obviously relies
heavily on the transposition table for good performance.

So this brings me to the question of hashing Quiscient nodes. I would like to
know what the generally accepted thing to do is?

Btw, I am really envious of everyone who has an engine thats able to compete in
CCT5. Hopefully mine will be in an acceptable state next time round. :)
