Regarding the last point, the external player feature allows to send 
commands to a gnubg instance on a TCP socket.

This is not a core library approach either, but I think that in chess 
open source software they tend to use a similar approach, with a few GUI 
applications and many engines using a common communication protocol.

That may be an intresting project for those interested in GUI 
programming. A backgammon GUI front-end, with various back-ends to 
communicate with gnubg, fibs, dailygammon, another GUI over a chat 
application, etc...
