Ferret has a huge speculative penalty for having the king and the rook screwed
up like that.  The reason is that I got sick of losing games where its king and
rook got srewed up like that.

The score bottomed out at +0.29 or something, right after c3.  Everyone was
saying my program was dead, for quite a long time, and perhaps they were right.

I enjoyed that game but I've been on the receiving end of that kind of thing,
too, from approximately everyone.
