Cool! How far have you come in the progress? Is this a Qt interface or
an full integration with KDE?

Do you have a source repository we can take a glance at?

I rather think we should consider defining an common API and or protocol
for backgammon evaluations.

Can you think of something? The absolutely basic functions such API
needs would be:

Then you probably need more for handling cube and stuff. You also need
some data structure to store the stuff like 'move', 'board', 'evaluation
settings' etc.

Think about it for a while. A unified API or protocol whould be really
nice for the community. Just like winboard and UCI standards in chess.
