have each game in a separate file in a directory so the user can use the
interface they already know for selecting which one to open.
Problem files are a special case, since a set of problems are examined
sequentially, or just identified by number. This works very naturally
with problem sets. I use .prb instead of .sgf for problem sets
to make them easy to find. (And because I still support the old
.prb MFGO format, which was compressed Ishi format).

the right to distribute them electronically. I don't expect many people

Many Faces, but I had to get permission from the copyright owners.
