Even if we won't explore any ocean tiles, we'd still like to stay coastal.
So choices that keep us near known coasts, but don't explore new ocean,
are slightly valuable. Otherwise the explorer has a tendancy to reach a point
where it won't be able to explore more ocean, and it'll give up and head off
across country.

Note that if a move reveals zero tiles, it has a score of zero, even if it
has different known tiles.
