One question: With the use of GTK 2.6, would this mean that implementing the
W/G/BG percentiles in the Analysis pane would now be possible or easier?

The two features in Snowie that I miss the most are:

1) the ability to quickly move pieces around or the score to see how they
change the evaluation or best move. This can be done, but it means losing
the game score and analysis.

2) Seeing the percentiles at the same time as the moves. I had suggested
they be placed below the moves and their respective equities, much like
Snowie which has a very good presentation of this, but due to limitations in
GTK 1.3 it turned out to be extremely awkward.
