### Zeropiecers

What are (I'm not into fairy :-) fairy conditions potentially
making a valid chess problem out of a zeropiecer? No retro

P1205982 was the first one really applying while searching
APIECE=0 on the PDB, excluding G=Retro and G=Mathematics.
P1206238, otherwise interesting - on a trollolo level :-) -
has "Ergänze..." which also should be excluded.

Feel free to link to further examples.

The famous 8Q puzzle? Knight tours?

:D

Totally normal Alzheimer. Man, I'm 62, sometimes I even tell old
jokes twice :-) (Also, 10 years is an eternity in fairy chess ;-)
