It is still under debate.  Basically we don't trust certain interfaces that set
your hash to 1MB and do other evil things of that nature.  Vincent especially
thinks that such trickery will only increase in future versions.

His solution is to not support UCI.  My solution is to not care.  A possible
compromise solution may be to release with WB2 support only.

>If so: Who shall buy it then?

Realistically speaking the number of people that would use the engine in fritz
is very small.  Also, the new gui really is rather nice.
