I don't understand.

All of the better programs that I've read have preconfigured chess knowledge of
some sort for evaluating positions.

Are you saying that Rybka has a precalculated table containing the evaluations
of some common positions? Like a middlegame book? Would that even help beyond
the opening. Even if it did, would it be bad?

Whatever that program does, it's damn clever.
