Hmmm ... personally I've never used Snowie so I'm not a fan of adjusting
rating scheme (trnslation) to Snowie's one. I still think that an 'Equiv.
Rating' should do the job. More coplicate would be to make it optional :
use gnubg rating or snowie rating ...

BTW, I'm almost often rated Expert by gnubg : if Snowie rates me above that
(WorldClass) I think it's rating scheme has a problem :))))

Right now everybody uses Snowie (I wonder if everybody has paid for it ...)
but I think that many users would switch to gnubg as soon as a windows
build with the latest code (GTK2, board3d, SSE speed impovements, python
db support, ...) is available. One of the major obstacles to have Snowie
users use gnubg was the absence of Win/WinG/WinBG percetages below each
move in the hint/analysis list : now it is done so ...
