  Then you could simply comment out the appropriate function in
uct/prior.c?  Perhaps just insert a return statement at the beginning
of uct_prior().

  On a second thought, I think you will want to keep at least

	uct_prior_even(u, node, map);

which just adds a uniform prior to all moves (no information carried).
This might be important for RAVE tree search stability so it's more of
a techncial hack, but I'm not 100% sure anymore if it's required in
the current algorithm.
