[Computer-go] Crazy Stone is back

I am not convinced it is better. I guess rollouts can bring some additional strength, especially in a CPU-only setting. I'll test this later.

For the moment, my main objective is shogi. I will participate in the World Computer Shogi Championship in May. So I am developing a game-independent AlphaZero framework. I won't be using playouts in shogi, so I am focusing on optimizing search without rollouts.

Thank you. So Remi gave up on rollouts as well. Interesting "difference
of opinion" there with Zen.

Last time I tested this in regular Leela, playouts were beneficial, but
this was before combined value+policy nets and much more training data
was available. I do not know what the current status would be.
