I think that there should be some general interface that supports winboard or
UCI programs for games with 2 computers so at least programmers who support the
standard do not need to test their programs with some autoplayer.

I know that winboard or UCI engines have no problem to play under arena and if I
understood correctly Arena is also going to support the autoplayer so I guess
that there will be no problem to do it in the future.
