More Engines

I made various improvements in the WinBoard/XBoard implemention in Chess for Android and are now able to successfully import and play with the following XBoard engines (I also tested the corrected UCI sungorus engine).

Crafty 23.4                  Robert Hyatt
scorpio 2.7                  Daniel Shawul
sloppy 0.22                  Ilari Pihlajisto
tscp1.81                     Tom Kerrigan
sungoros-14-ja               Pablo Vazquez


Below, I posted the cross-table of a quick test tournament from both sides of just the first position of the Nunn opening suite.
