Looks fine. I've:

-rw-r--r--    1 jth      jth       9529134 Nov 27 17:40 br1.c

The difference is 101522 bytes. I would expect a difference equal to the
number of lines (which is 183288 on my box).

I'll add some checks to br1.c to ensure that the database is correct.

To ensure that it's present: the one-sided database *must* be present
(it's used for other stuff than bearoff probs). So it's purely
convinience: I don't have to cope with the database not being present.

Actually I didn't think about people having to download it several

Point taken. But it's very convinient to have it built-in :-)
