[Computer-go] Learning from CGOS

Awesome Joshua! I agree with the others. Start open sourcing it right away.
That's what I did with my Go bot that I started writing in a language I
didn't know. And people (well, two ;)) just decided to help out.

As for features. Well, I'd be happy if you just reimplemented CGOS and it
were running all the time for all three sizes. ;) There are only minor
things I'd like to change:

1. The standings page could update more frequently
2. The length of the usernames is a bit restricting for me as my bot is
called Iomrascálaí which almost takes up all 16 (?) characters. Adding a
version number and some identifiers for various command line parameters
gets difficult then.
3. On that topic. Allowing characters other than ASCII in a username would
be nice, too. It's 2015 after all.

Other than that, I'm happy with the way it's set up.
