Anyone know whether an attempt to solve Rifle Chess is (or has already) happen[ing/ed] somewhere?

In view of Losing Chess being solved (i.e. White should win from the start with optimal play), I'd certainly feel happier playing a game of Rifle Chess than a game of the former nowadays, if I had to choose between the two variants, for that reason alone.
