Show player 0 dice after roll?

I think it would be easy to use the tutor code to build a 'kibitz'
mode or somesuch with a display for bad moves, missed doubles,
fantastic luck or not, without too much trouble. Or it could be a
separate window giving similar information to what I assume Snowie

The top three moves with their equity/MWC or for double/take the
equities/MWC for the cube decision.
A line for reporting missed double errors
A line for reporting exceptional dice luck

Should it be a popup you have to clear or a separate window you can
place and size to taste?

Agreed, although I think they should be at the right end of the
toolbar, not in the middle.

I like it too. Out of curiousity, can one disable the pip count?
