[hjjiytlg] Text only chess

A table: name of each piece, and coordinates of where it is.  Name might be the original name in descriptive notation, e.g., King's Knight Pawn.  Some pieces will have location "captured".

Possibly useful for interfaces which cannot show diagrams.

Could easily add additional annotations about pieces being attacked and defended, etc.

Inspired by a baseball scoreboard showing the players' names and their stats for the game.
