Looks like a neat project. I think "oddity" is not merely "etrange"
but also a word-play on the mathematical meaning of "odd" (because
it takes an odd number of half-moves to reach a symmetrical position);
it might be asking too much to find a French translation that maintains
this _jeu de mots_...
