A simpe 'or' wouldn't be good enough, I think.  In most cases when you are
interested in x-ray attacks, you will also want to know what kind of piece
the x-ray is "radiating" through.

The idea is still interesting, though (and it seems that many people do
something similar).  I will take a look at it when I am desparate enough
about improving the speed of my engine (currently 150kn/s on a Pentium 4
2.4 GHz, and constantly dropping).
