I think we rather should make a sgf laucher program. A program that looks at
the sgf file and finds out whenever this is a Go file or Backgammon file or
whatever file. Then the program can launch the right application based on
environment variables. The user can set environmant variables

I think this will be the best solution, since it will work for all (?)
systems, and also cooperate for players who plays Go as well.

And, such a program won't be many lines.
