Dear Eric

>>Type D: K-/N-, 9

Composers/compilers assumed that knowing if it's a K-/N-
or a N-/K- with respect to colours (colors?) was not very
important. One only would have to change sides if he wants
the moves written the other way.

So they agreed on writing them in alphabetical order, that's
easier for maintaining the list (with a spreadsheet) i suppose.

And it spoils less the pleasure of retracting the moves! ;)
