I am very open to specific suggestions about making aisleriot behave
more like the old freecell. Logic improvements are more likely to
occur before a scoreboard because of a general rewrite of the scoring
code. For best results file explicit suggestions in bugzilla and try
and be clear, I'm not an obsessive freecell player (I'm an obsessive
seahaven player). There are already some in bugzilla, check them

Feel free to take the old code and give it some care. The main reason
that it was dropped from gnome-games was to make gnome-games more
maintainable (by avoiding duplication). 

Contributions to the aisleriot code-base are of course always welcome.
