Actually, I've been answering mails before testing things on IGS. I should
have done it with reverse order.

Handicap, undo, adjourn had been fixed a week or more ago already. Komi,
addtime I had reported few days ago, it's fixed now. So obviously "say" is
the (to my knowledge) last problem, and a minor one.

So I will not do the above mentioned change. Common gameID even in single
games does obviously not hurt anymore (except say for now). So I see no
reason to change it back again. I added a one-liner check for say to fix it
for now, as IGS probably wont be changed before next monday. I tried some
single and multiple games, and the above mentioned commands work properly
with the new syntax.

The "sgf name-" problem was reported to PandaNet as well now, but that has
nothing to do with own games and the gameID syntax. And its also not
critical, so I will leave gGo as it is now and wait for the server fix.

After all, while you are testing gGo, you are also debugging IGS. Good job :*)
