I hate that idea. If I drag 21: 13/10, it would be really annoying to
have to choose between 13/11 11/10 and 13/12 12/10.

Having read through all the arguments, I think that always playing the
higher die first is the best suggestion. Then we are not asking gnubg to
make a choice of the user's intent; we are implementing a fixed
interpretation of a user's command from the gui. 

But I can't say it will detract from my gnubg experience if no change is
made at all.

Just my 2 cents.
