It's very useful for studying bear-in and bear-off. I haven't
yet figured out how to include t in the available space, though.

This info available from analyse/one-sided rollout, though I
admit that the eval window gives more detailed info.

I'm not convinced that one-sided rollout does anything useful at all. Changing the number of trials and pressing "Rollout" does not appear to do anything. Do the numbers displayed come from the race databases, or an estimate from the race net? Does anyone know? I think Jørn coded it, but he's been inactive lately.

If the former, what purpose does the "rollout" button serve?
If the latter, then it's just an estimate and not necessarily accurate.

I like the epc on the main window because it's great for studying. The epc is live during edit mode. This means you can drag chequers around to see what effect it has on the epc. However, the really important value during this process is wastage, which is why I would like to see it on the main display.

I also like the epc on the main window.  Please keep it as it is.
