#7 keyboard control

Kyle Mulka

It'd be nice to be able to operate the brutal chess gui
completely via the keyboard

One way: use the arrow keys to select a piece, space or
enter to pick up, arrow keys to move, space or enter to
drop. For this, you might need to set the orientation
of the board before each move so that up doesn't go
sideways or something.

Second way: type in the square letter and number of the
from and to square. You'd probably need to label the
rows and columns for this.
