[Bug-gnubg] Simple playing strengths

The way you currently set the playing strength of gnubg isn't great. For a beginner all the options are meaningless, for a more experienced player the settings don't easily relate to actual strength.

A simple idea is to replace the current player->settings with just a single combo-list (with the 8 strengths). The idea is that both the chequer and cube settings will be set to this value. An "advanced" button could then pop up all the current settings.

BTW, does anyone now roughly what fibs ratings the current preset settings map to? Perhaps the settings could be tweaked slightly to broaden the playing range and differenciate more between settings. This is because I often hear people (beginners) say "it's too hard/good even on the easiest setting" and "it doesn't seem any different between setting [x] and [y]".

Any thoughts?
