There is absolutely no reason we can't do that. It just so happens that we
never have.

I certainly want to do this for spider. We have 1, 2 and 4 suit spider
with a bug in bugzilla calling for 3. Each game is virtually identical. In
fact, I think that when you define one spider game the others can be
derived merely by changing the initial conditions: i.e. what suits you
dish out in the first place. Although Will o the Wisp and Spiderette could
also benefit from the common code, but not as simply.
