First off: thank you all for a great piece of software.

When I choose GNUBG as my opponent I do it mostly to get instant analyses and to benchmark my understanding of different parts of the game. While the tutor mode can be good is does not always tell me when I misjudge a position. It also does not tell me how the game swings when the opponent gets lucky or unlucky. Instead of hitting the hint button before each roll to benchmark my ability to assess a position it would be great to have the equity and gammon chances displayed while playing, much like the pip count is displayed. (Preferably it would also be easy to turn it off, and preferably it would be evaluated in a separate thread so one does not need to wait for it to complete before making ones move.)

For advanced players this may not be so useful, but for those of us that still get into situations where we have no idea what-so-ever of how strong or weak a position is, then this would make it easier to get an idea and also to find good reference positions.
