Actually, you have hit on two interesting points.  Firstly, Deep* blue has Chess
CPU's.  For a machine such as this, a chess compiler is trivial.  Indeed, any
other kind of compiler is a nightmare.

Now, what about general purpose CPU's?  Could a formal grammar of chess be
implemented that actually becomes a programming language?  I don't see why not.
It might be possible to do some very nice work in this regard.  I suspect that
some C++ implementation probably follow this abstraction to a degree at times.
