Random thought: can move tracking be "repaired" after the fact? If
there were an API to do so, users / GUI's could repair such "broken
(legacy) moves" at some point (either automatically or at the request
of the user after he's gotten some hint by the GUI (and perhaps after
some operations such as updating, if necessary)).
