/*
    General use of this interface:
    1. freecell_solver_alloc_instance()
    2. Set the parameters of the game
    3. If you wish to revert, go to step #11.
    4. freecell_solver_init_instance()
    5. Call freecell_solver_solve_instance() with the initial board.
    6. If it returns FCS_STATE_SUSPEND_PROCESS and you wish to proceed,
       then increase the iteration limit and call
       freecell_solver_resume_instance().
    7. Repeat Step #6 zero or more times.
    8. If the last call to solve_instance() or resume_instance() returned
       FCS_STATE_SUSPEND_PROCESS then call
       freecell_solver_unresume_instance().
    9. If the solving was successful you can use the move stacks or the
       intermediate stacks. (Just don't destory them in any way).
    10. Call freecell_solver_finish_instance().
    11. Call freecell_solver_free_instance().

    The library functions inside lib.c (a.k.a fcs_user()) give an
    easier approach for embedding Freecell Solver into your library. The
    intent of this comment is to document the code, rather than to be
    a guideline for the user.
