Hi Mathew,

I'm looking forward to your the new version of GAlib. 
I'd like to suggest that you change the Tournment selector.
The implimentation in GAlib is not in line with the common 
definition of Tournment selection in EC litrature.
It should have nothing to RouletteWheel. Tournment selection 
is much simpler. (see the EC Handbook C2.3).
What we have now in GAlib is very severe selection mechanism 
that doesn't work very well...

Best Regards,
