The package igo is based on go, a package written in 1991 by Hanna 
Kolodziejska which provides typesetting facilities for Go games and 
positions. Although igo contains roughly the same commands as the original 
package and uses the fonts created by Kolodziejska, it has (hopefully) been 
improved by
1. Using command names less likely to conflict with standard AMS packages;
2. Allowing different board sizes to be used;
3. Understanding a standardized notation for board coordinates;
4. Providing the facility to work on more than one board.
Moreover, a few commands were reworked to define positions or game sequences 
more conveniently.
