I personally would not spend time on this minor issue at this point. If you want to save space you can try and train dedicated nets, which might outperform the one-sided approach.

In the comments on the github page you write:

Note that due to its size, the two-sided bearoff database gnubg_ts0.bd
is currently not packaged.

Maybe you could package a smaller two-sided database ? The default one
with 6 checkers is 7M but one with only 4 checkers is much smaller
(350k). You can create it with "makebearoff -t 6x4 -f gnubg_ts0.bd".

If I remember correctly, for some time Russ Allbery had been reluctant
to install it in the Debian port (but the issue was the time that may be
needed to compute it at installation time, not its size per se).

I suppose that, when these databases were introduced, it has been
studied how the two-sided one improved accuracy over the one-sided one
for various numbers of checkers left. Does anyone has these results ?
