In the latest version I dropped the combineScores() and inlined
the summing (in advanceAfterCurrent()).
The main reason is that passing the scoring values of the scorers
in an array does not scale well, ie. it will always cost an amount of
work in proportion to the number of scorers, even if only one of
them actually has a score.

Changing this is should be no problem, though.
