Yes, yes!

I'd love to be able to visit Gunnar's game page, click on a link, view
the game, move by move (through the browser), note which moves
are bad, and have a tst file be generated.

If GNU Go loses on NNGS, it could ask the winner to comment on 
the game, directing them to a URL.  I bet we would get a lot of useful 
test cases this way.  I imagine drop-downs offering options like,
"life & death mistake", "terrible move", etc.  With a URL like this,
I bet lazarus, and many others, would be happy to provide us with 
a bunch of test files right away.  Of course, these tests wouldn't be 
added to the regression suite.
