	Yes - preferably on the same machine. Ultimately you need to ask
yourself why you're using any given tool.

	_Unfortunately_ today's world being what it is - you almost certainly
want to use SOAP for internet wide IPC - since it goes through
fire-walls. So checkout the 'soup' module.

	Yep - plain libglade / gtk+ sounds good for everything GUI. Of course -
if you think you can feasibly use a mail / file transport for the game
moves - it'd be nice to have a bonobo component that can be used inside
evolution for making moves etc. Depending if you think that's a good
idea - the same thing would view boards inside nautilus; it just depends
if that's worth doing :-) Hopefully in some ideal future it'd also plug
into Mozilla ... but problems there some of the chicken and egg variety.
