As a follow-up, we are working on implementing these features. I already implemented the "Eval in Money Play" button. See https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnubg/2020-10/msg00047.html for details.

I was thinking that too - although for chequer decisions, I would suggest it only try 4 variants: gammon-go, gammon-save, dmp, and money.

I'd like to strongly support this request, and encourage generalizing it to play decisions as well. I find that a large part of the time spent analyzing a match consists in copying positions at a given score into a second gnubg window, then editing the score to money, then running the evaluation again to obtain a "score-independent" decision. A simple button automating it would be great.

It'd be nice to provide an interface saying what the right cube action is at different scores. This could easily be arranged as a grid (plus the correct decision at money). The user should be able to change the grid size and analysis level.

I've written a script that does this using the command-line layout (attached), looking like this:

./score-analysis.sh 4PPgAVDMZsYBMA:cAkgAQAAMAAE
Position ID 4PPgAVDMZsYBMA, me on roll
Cube value: 1

Money game: DP

    2  3  4  5  6  7
  3 TG dP DP DT nd ND
m 4 tg tg dP dP dP DP
  6 dP dP dP dP DP DP
  7 dP dP dP dP DP DP

(Lower-case indicates the equity difference is below a threshold of .04.) I could be interested in helping to develop this feature, but I probably couldn't do it alone as I have no experience with gtk.
