[r3k3/7R/4P3/4B3/8/8/8/5bK1]

4+3. h# in exactly 4 half-moves; how many solutions? (Vertical cylinder, free castling)

"free castling" on a vertical cylinder: Move the king two squares on the 8th
rank, and then hop with the rook over the king in either way, if possible. I.e.
there are four possible castlings in the diagram position; the position after
those castlings are Kc8/Rb8, Kc8/Rd8, Kg8/Rf8, Kg8/Rh8.

3+7. #4 (Maximummer since black's last move)

[r3k3/6pp/4K2P/4p1b1/8/p3P3/8/8]


In 11784, a possible tactic could for instance be to reach a position in which
white retracts castling, leading to a position where castlings are mutually
exclusive.

11785-11787 and 11793-11795 are C+. 11790 has more than 170 solutions.
