Heck, if you have contact with Eberhard -- ask him to add a command line to
specify kibitzing and a filename (winboard232c.exe -k d:\program
files.....\eval.txt) and do the same thing you do -- paste the file contents to
ICC right before sending the auto232 move.  Additionally, the file could be
deleted as a safety precaution, and re-created each time by the engine's PV

He is an old friend, but I've lost his email address.  When we had first thought
about entering CCT5, I worked with him a bit, but then Mark and I pulled away
from the idea for different reasons.
