A better way would be to allow external dice DLL's instead
of many internal ones, so that people can use whatever
version of whatever RNG's they prefer.

While on this topic, the only way to convince people that
your bot doesn't cheat by looking ahead, etc. is to allow
them to play with manual dice. But rolling physical dice
or generating rolls in some other external ways and then
entering them with the use of mouse alone is too tedious.

It would be very useful to add (or add back??) the basic
capability of entering dice rolls using the keyboard, as it
is provided by all other bots that ever existed. That way,
an external EXE process can emulate manual dice rolls in
a fully automated manner by passing the numbers to the
bot as keyboard inputs. Offering such basic functionality
should come before forcing users to click on pretty dice
icons to pick rolls from a crowded table.

It seems that it has been updated online in 2011
(http://www.math.sci.hiroshima-u.ac.jp/m-mat/MT/emt.html), if someone
wants to introduce that in gnubg.
I took a look at this new version. A nice bonus is that the API changed
slightly and gnubg could now use it as-is, without the changes Joern
Thyssen had to add to the initial version ("make mt and mti parameters")
to make it thread-safe.
