This zrf gives a phony Ghost to White (which is captured when Black's
Ghost is captured). Hence there isn't too much distortion in Zillions'
evaluation.
I have also added four extra setups with a White Ghost on c3, d3, e3 or f3
and a Black Ghost in hand (and another phony capturable Ghost to each, for
evaluation purposes). Now both players have the same army, but White's
development remains more hampered than Black's.
