Yes; the number of turns cannot be precisely predicted.
It would make everything a lot easier if we dropped the randomness (they did
in ctp), both for ai and goto. (as already mentioned). Do anyone feel very
strongly about having the randomness?
Actually I think it would be fairly simple to do the actual implementation.
