Thank you, Alan. As many answers, this poses me a new question: why
should I call update_idle_tasks() instead of update() ? What's the
difference between the two methods?

In general, I do agree. But I explained rather verbosely the peculiar
situation I'm facing in my practice project: where would you put the
automatic move call, if not where I did? I need an automatic move be
performed at the proper moment, when it's the computer player turn.
SID! (sure it did!)
