lagno's AI? is that in one of the other gnome-games packages?

IMO: It looks a bit ott for snakes. I was planning on 3 difficulty
levels, a basic rules based AI, a more advanced rules based AI and
then a quick depth first search (where I'll try and take shortcuts).
Because gnibbles is a fast game, I would be quite concerned about the
speed of an AI and making sure it still runs nice on a 486 thats
serving web pages at the same time :)

If this library (or one similar) was implemented across all of gnome
games and it became a solid part of the package then that might make
things different.
