My wishlist to Dueller is pretty short:
- don't start BGBlitz itself but use host:port as parameter
- or better just call it Socket Interface and just use host:port.

That way everyone could plug in even if running on another OS. And it is more 
robust against changes. E.g. because Dueller started BGBlitz itself it failed 
when I restructured the file structure of BGB.
