I do not think all of the pawns need to be defended in the opening array to
make for a good game of chess.  For example, I think ANBQKBNM would work as
an opening array, even though the B pawn in undefended.

The problem with Fischer random chess is that some arrays favor White
unfairly, and some will be too drawish.
