But I don't think it's about saving time, because according to what was written it's an idea for the training, not the playing.
I mean, saving training time (say, if without this Leela would have had some strength at December, we get there In October, "saving" two months of time. Though of course we wouldn't know...)
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

I guess we have to wait and see what they mean (if they end up doing it). I thought it might mean they are trying to make it better at all openings, not just its favourite openings, which might never happen no matter how much time you train it for, unless there's some change in how it trains in the opening. Even with changes, we don't know that will happen.
