I don't really have any objection, I like the idea, but I'm not sure
about adding that many virtual packages. You listed 9 protocols, this
means 18 new virtual packages while the current list has 90 virtual

I don't play any chess variant or go so I'm biased here, but I'd say uci
is the most well-known and used protocol. Thus I'd be ok to add virtual
packages for the uci and cecp protocols, but I'm less convinced about
the 5 protocols for shogi variants.
