Summary and Conclusions
 The API
Why would you state that some of the moves observed on the input channel may not have been generated by an opponnent?
Is there a distinction between "new game" and "new opponent"?
Is there a chance that new symbols will be introduced mid-game?
Can I assume that the symbols will be strings of some maximum length?
Why would you state that some of the moves observed on the input channel may not have been generated by an opponnent?
Because some of the games may be solitary in nature (i.e. there may not be an opponnent at all)! However, observed symbols will never be deliberately misleading!
Is there a distinction between "new game" and "new opponent"?
No. This is deliberate: we want your program to begin from scratch each time there is a new opponnent, a new game, or both.
Is there a chance that new symbols will be introduced mid-game?
No, the alphabet will be specified at the beginning of the game, and after that no new symbols will be introduced.
Can I assume that the symbols will be strings of some maximum length?
Yes, the symbols will never be longer than 32 characters, including the end-of-string character.
