usually computer go tournaments are non byo yomi tournaments.
However, it is useful to have byo yomi in gtp to interface
programs with IGS or NNGS, and with graphical front ends..
I agree that we should let room for any time system to be
In the get_clock command, how do we know if we are in byo
yomi or in the main time, and how do we know there is no
byo yomi ?
