I have put away a a set of files that is a start towards a slightly
extended MatchID. I have built a set of Windows test files (Use at your
own risk) that include all the new code. The installer can be found here

 This version uses one of our 6 spare bits (Bit 67) to store the flag
fNotJacoby. A value of 1=No Jacoby, A value of 0 = Jacoby .

Since I am uncertain of 100% compatibility I have ifdef'ed the new
extended MatchID support so that we can build either or. A normal 
./autogen.sh; ./configure --enable-threads;  make; make install will
build Old Style MatchID support.

To build the new extended MatchID support you can enable it with
./configure --enable-threads --enable-extmatchid  . You can also just
add  #define USE_EXTENDEDMATCHID 1  to your config.h .

If you utilize the new code The Jacoby flag contained in XG or an
extended style GNUBGID will be used to set the jacoby flag (It will not
override the default jacoby setting in Settings/Options/Dice. The global
flag is used as the default when starting a new money session, and is
also used to set the default Jacoby flag when editing a position. The
GUI has been altered slightly as well. The Jacoby flag now appears under
the Match length IF the Match Length is 0. If Matchlen > 0 then it shows
the Crawford flag. This also applies if you edit the position.  There
are still some quirks/bugs with the UI and I'll try to clean them up

If you are going to test new code I recommend using/building  the
extended MatchID versions. Once we are sure it is safe I'll remove the
compiler directives and default to using the new code for all builds.
