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 ...).
