@rcurtin , The `Score()` calculation is different too, because I consider the special case of overlapping nodes. As there are 3 different methods, I thought it would preferable to have a different implementation, but I agree this means some duplicated code. I was not sure what was preferable, some duplicated code with the advantage of not modifying the original search rules, or more compact code but a bit more complex.

As I have to access the `Overlap()` method of Spill Trees and it is not included in all tree types, I can't use the `#ifdef` approach, because we will have a compiler error when instantiating with a different tree type. I think I should consider template specialization for the Score() methods.
