thank you for bringing up this topic.
I think, time is really ripe for the go community
to get such an interface.

A VERY nice one, in my opinion.

I would buy it immediately.
And then I would start nerving Remi, Yamato San, GianCarlo Pascutto,
Frank Karger and ... until their babies would be available for it ;-)
It would be nice when the interface would allow unattended series of
(test) games between two engines.

In chess the ChessBase company did a medium approach: They are also developing
and selling the Fritz engines. Several years ago, when Fritz8 was the current
version, they offered a semi-cheap interface which included Fritz5 and some
other free engines as a starting stock for the user.
An analogon for a ManyFaces-based platform might be a semi-cheap program
(perhaps $39 ?), including ManyFaces11.000 and perhaps Leela0.316 and/or
some other bots for 9x9 or 13x13 only.
