During Nordic Open, Ed O'Laughlin came up to us and wanted to know how to do batch analysis of several matches. He told us that he had tried the Atool (http://lint.de/) for this, without success. As I tried to explain how he could do this with a command file, I realized that would be to clumsy and hard for a end user to do this. Then Achim suggested the batch python scrips, but we realized that that would be silly as well, since running the script requires both Python (a special mystical version of Python?) and PythonWin. Also to clumsy and hard for a end user.

I said: "Let's implement the feature, and forget about 'Atool' and Python!". I rushed over to the computer in the lobby (The only computer available with web connection), and browsed some source files. After 15 minutes of browsing I claimed this should be a simple task.

I've now committed this feature to the cvs repository, so it will be available from the next build, Ed.

Watch out:
It's still buggy!
It's not much tested!

I've put the menu item under Analysis/Batch analysis. Should it rather have been under 'Files'? Any opinions?

Things not tested or developed:
* What happens if fConfirm is TRUE? Will it
  ask for confirmation for each match?

* What about the sound? Can we temporary set the
  analysisfinished sound to None? Not really nice, though....

* What happens if someone cancels the analysis... ?
(This question is really important if we toggle a global variable)

* A progress dialog might be better than the progress bar in
  the statusline.

Thanks to Ed for pushing this.
