I have a Zillions 2.0 ZRF for Wizard's War that does piece creation
automatically and also plays better.  (Thanks to Jens Markmann for making
the modifications.)

It differs from the current ZRF in that it doesn't respect the piece
limits--it will allow a player to have seven Knights or eight Rooks on the
board at once.

Extensive testing indicates that the piece limits are not necessary to
play balance and that this rule can be dropped. Zillions has as yet not
created seven or more of the same piece in games, but has done so in
created positions.

I don't want to make any changes to the web pages while the contest is
being judged, but if anyone wants the new ZRF, eamil me and I will send it
to you.
