Yes, it makes perfect sense (I did myself, after all).  I suppose I 
assumed (withouttt thinking about it very much) that most sighted people 
would want to use it with xboard ....  Shall I change that to Suggests? 
- that might be more appropriate.

BTW, Ian, you mentioned you ussed gnuchessc ... could you briefly explain 
to me how it works? :-)  The documentation says it uses the `chesstool' 
program on Suns &c, but I haven't found that, and running the program 
just puts my machine in a graphics mode :-( (not very helpful when you're 
using /dev/vcsa0 to read it ...).
