Haven't zillionsed it yet. Good idea. Should do that.

 Good point about the first one. I know Eric is very distrustful of it and
our assumption is that White may very well be able to gain a quick winning
position by playing the opening accurately. 

The impression I'm getting about the second one - hidden - is that it is
'cozy' because the guards, wazirs and ferzes protect points that are
traditionally weak in FIDE.
