Hi Gabor,

As Robert pointed out, I have NOT copied Thomas' code.  In fact even the
behaviour of the code is different.  Every single line in the Fruit source code
was typed by me and is "original" in the sense "not copy/pasted".  I am
therefore sole author of Fruit 2.1 although Thomas is not sole author of Toga.

If you consider using ideas from other people as "co-authorship", then every
single engine in the world has hundreds of authors (alpha-beta, PVS, iterative
deepening, etc ...).  You would run a tournament with one engine, all others
having common authors with it.
