No, you're right..  On second thought, I doubt it ever takes place.  Even though
many amateurs ask to use the CB GUI in events for the books, I'm sure the ones
who don't ask just write their books from ground zero.

Nevertheless, it doesn't bother me a bit -- pure book wins are not excessively
glorious.  We could play the tournament with no books for all I care.
