There are some "problems" with the backend part of gnubg as well. The
major ones are:

(a) only support for one active "matchstate"
(b) problems with the internal representation of a match
(c) some other minor problems

Before we redesign the UI at think we need to fix at least (a),
otherwise it's not possible to make a multi-document interface, where
it's possible to have several matches, games, sessions, or positions
open. This is a huge change and probably not coming soon (most of the
work comes from adding parameters to many internal functions instead of
using hardcoded ones -- I might start this task as preparation).

We have discussed (b) earlier: this is the problem that leads to missing
analysis for positions.

Among the minor issues:

One of the things I would really like to change is the rollout-progress:
currently the GTK calls are hardcoded in the rollouts routines. It would
be better to pass a progress-callback function and have the rollouts
routines call that.
