[Retros] Cook-reporting

Dear friends,

My earlier email about the reporting of cooks was strictly from the
composer's perspective. It was not until I read Andrey's email that I had any
idea that finding a cook gave a solver extra points in solving competitions.
(I have enough trouble composing problems that I hope will interest other
retroanalysts without getting involved in the solving competitions.)

By the way, regarding a composition that I still regard as one of my
most clearly thematic (in the retroplay each of two Rs circumnavigates the same
P, one moving clockwise, the other counterclockwise) die Schwalbe published a
"cook" that consisted of the precisely correct solution. On the database,
Gerd Wilts was kind enough to take the position that the problem was not cooked.
