[Bug-gnubg] "View Statistics"

I'd like to request that a feature be added to GNU Backgammon to allow the 
user to save the statistics about number of games ending with the cube on 
various values, and whether it was a gammon/backgammon or not.

I raised this issue on Stick's forum and got three responses.  Joe Russell 
was very enthusiastic, and Chuck Bower and Matt Cohn-Geier did at least 
say that they used the "View Statistics" feature and complained about not 
being able to save the information.


The way I currently do most of my rollouts (on a Linux system) is to 
prepare a text file that has something like this---

  set gnubgid xt1cABCzMwcBDA:QYkIAAAAAAAA
  cmark move set rollout 1 2 3 4
  analyse rollout move
  save position "myposition.sgf"

---and then set it running with "cat file | gnubg -t > output &".  Then I 
come back later when the rollout is done to view the SGF file.

I'd like to be able to add a line to the file like

  save statistics "myposition.stt"

to save the statistics.  How hard is this to implement?
