IMO, it would be a pity if the decision which protocol to choose would be based

I followed some of Zappa's Island games and was quite impressed how
imaginatively Zappa handled middlegame or how it operated with its own king.
Maybe, I'm wrong, but I think it therefore could be an excellent engine using
for analysis in Chess Assistant (or Chessbase 9, too, for example.) However, for
this purpose Zappa should preferably come as an UCI version.

Just my 0.02$.
