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 

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.
