As for "cheating" - there are many other patches that quite greatly enhance the GUI and ease of construction and such ... my console commands patch, copy and paste patch, minimap enhancement patches, colored town rating and others ...
Anybody can get any of the patches and use them, everybody have access as anybody can download files from these forums. There are even binaries here for people too lazy (or too unskilled) to compile it on their own.
Unless someone programs some really evil extra feature in it (like automatically blocking an opponent as soon as he build something) I see no cheating in it. The conditions are fair to everybody.
