Tim Krabbe discusses this in his website (see section 328). It's an old post - dating to 2006 - so it's certainly possible. However 2006 was also a long time ago. Since then engines have gotten more familiar with the rules, and all the top engines I'm aware of are aware of the 50-move rule. 493 moves is very long, but it should still be fairly trivial to get ...
