I would love to see a standard interface for communication between a
backgammon GUI and a backgammon engine similar to UCI. Can someone
suggest/define a UBgI - Universal Backgammon Interface?

Yes, absolutely. And the best is, I believe we have such a beast already :)  

To connect BGBlitz to Tony Lezards "Dueller" (unfortunately it seems not to be available anymore) Tony defined a TCP/IP based protocol, so different blots can play against each other. I implemented it in BGBlitz and Tony in Dueller.

It seems to me that this would be the perfect match. One issue: on the documentation of the protocol is a "Confidential" mark, so I will ask him first whether it can be published. I'm pretty sure we can connect anything except Snowie and Jellyfish. There is only a small server needed that holds the state and drives the match for automated duels. 

Does this sound interesting? :))

Happy Xmas 2 all
