  I think automated tuning against humans is still unexplored, perhaps
except some experiments of Hideki-san, I'm not sure. I'd be interested
to hear your experiences if you try this - I'd be worried about great
amount of noise due to the strength variation of human opponents;
besides different strenght/weakness mixes, you will not be playing just
1d humans all the time.
