Yeah, I can see the need for judges if the best program can't be
quantified in some objective way.  I lean towards settling the contest
on the program's field of battle.  Personally I'm more motivated to find
the best solution I can instead of something as open ended as "video
game" or "email utility".

I'd rather have the contest entries prove useful beyond the contest itself.  You don't want a dozen programs that all do the same thing do you?  Wouldn't you rather have about a dozen innovative, different tools that all do something different and useful?
