What I don't quite understand -- and perhaps it's naivete -- but why not use UCI
that supports "standard" copy protection?  A good example of this is Deep Sjeng.
 The problem with these schemes is that they tie the engine to the GUI.

I do understand that CM, and HMC is targeted at "beginners" who probably do not
ever desire separation of engine and GUI, but it seems like it could very easily
be done by more traditional means.
