This is on the TODO list already, but noone seems to work on it. 

An interesting side note is that Hugh Sconyers has offered to let us use
some of his bear-off databases (I assume he means that we can
interface to his database -- not distribuing them with gnubg).

For other people who do not want to purchase Sconyers' CDs we could
supply a program that could generate some smaller bear-off databases.
I don't think we have web-space and band-width for people to download
300+ MB files...

Are there any volunteers for doing this?
