I may be a dreamer but I've been wondering for a while if it was possible
to extract useful information from the eval window data (not knowing it's
crappy at the moment).

I mean something like : move #1 is better than move #2 because of the race,
or because of the gammon chances, or because of it keeps the contact, etc.

This corresponds to pull out some qualitative information from the neural
net outputs ... not really easy I suppose, but this would be the ultimate
learning tool ... a tool that explains you why you suck (instead of just
telling you that you suck) :))
