I second that idea. Having tournaments with Chinese rules by default
is friendly to Computer Go beginners, but having a Japanese rules
tournament once in a while would be nice to help weed out any bugs
(and assess how often some corner cases actually happen :-), especially
considering that some important non-KGS tournaments have Japanese rules.
