I am delighted to announce that I am going to work on this idea this summer:
http://socghop.appspot.com/student_project/show/google/gsoc2009/fsij/t124022332774

Basically, create http://robocode.sourceforge.net/ over Player/Gazebo
My first step will be create Ruby bindings for libplayerc.

Comments and guidance are welcomed.
