I have no evidence one way or the other whether anyone is doing it (I
don't play via PlayGem) however I think it is highly probable that it
has been done or will be done. GNUbg has been used to interface with
many other gaming sites. There is a commercial program (~$20) for Yahoo
(and Pogo I think) that uses GNUbg neural net to play automatically. If
it can be done for one website I am sure it can be done for another.
