Uh-oh. Though it does say "inspired by" at the top, and also that it is
not used by the main engine:

// This file is inspired by Pachi's engine
//   (https://github.com/pasky/pachi).
// The main DarkForest engine (when specified
//   with `--playout_policy v2`) does not depend on it.
// However, the simple policy opened with
//   `--playout_policy simple` will use this library.
