To say that Fafis is a clone of Crafty is going a bit far.

I doubt there is _one_ author out there that hasn't at some point looked at the
Crafty source for ideas. That is just the nature of things. Bob has put many
good ideas into Crafty and many "borrow" from it, including the professional
programs.

How many ways is there to really code the way to capture a king?

Fafis and Crafty _could_ use something very similiar for a move generator. It is
possible. If Rafael looked at the Crafty source, saw the way Bob did things,
wrote it his own way and produces similiar or equal results then it would be
fine.

I would just be careful to call a program a clone because of a few similiar
results.
