Suppose I have program that wants to use the RPC interface to send BTC less than 0.01?

I know that in theory the underlying protocol supports it (deflation in the future), but why design an API that *will have to change*?   If someone uses the raw protocol to send .000001 BTC what will the client display? 

I am not saying that there would be very small transactions, I am saying that some transactions may want much higher RESOLUTION.  Particularly for automatic, auto-negotiated, markets. 

What would happen if I modified my client to display and enter .000001BTC and then used that GUI to send .000001 to someone with the normal client?

they'd get a payment for 0.000001 which the GUI would quite probably round to 0.00... maybe 0.01 but I doubt it

As far as I know, the client will keep track of it properly, you just won't be able to spend it because the lowest the GUI allows is 0.01 so far.

If you want to test this, you can use my fullprecision branch of Gavin's test network.

http://github.com/EricJ2190/bitcoin-git/tree/fullprecision

I believe the normal client simply truncates the values whenever they are displayed.

Code:
string FormatMoney(int64 n, bool fPlus)
{
    n /= CENT;
    string str = strprintf("%"PRI64d".%02"PRI64d, (n > 0 ? n : -n)/100, (n > 0 ? n : -n)%100);
    for (int i = 6; i < str.size(); i += 4)
        if (isdigit(str[str.size() - i - 1]))
            str.insert(str.size() - i, 1, ',');
    if (n < 0)
        str.insert((unsigned int)0, 1, '-');
    else if (fPlus && n > 0)
        str.insert((unsigned int)0, 1, '+');
    return str;
}
