I suppose it helps that the opponent's position is a few-rolls position 
and more balanced long races would not do as well.

Would it be usable as is with the current gnubg ? Would any file larger 
than 2 Gb be, anyway ?

I would be interested in the generating code, at least as an example 
that handles the kind of issues below.

Are you, Øystein, or other readers, familiar with gnubg's bearoff 
databases format ? (I am not).

Would it be enough to compile gnubg with the appropriate 
and possibly some limited variables type changes in the code to be able 
to use bigger databases, or are there more subtle limitations in the 
current code ?

Similarly, to create a one-sided database for, say, 15 men up the 8 
point plus 2 up to the 18 point, or a similar subset of "plausible" 
positions, would it be enough to find an adequate indexing scheme ?
