Giving users another way to input data is definitely high on our list of things to add. Widgets that let you click on dots (tap on them in your phone) rather than type, widgets that guess then let you correct the guesses, and even widgets that present histograms for the user to twiddle all sound like good ideas.

That being said, I'd release your code to the masses, Moose, as after 2 hours from now, I will have absolutely no time to do anything with it. I'll likely send a few messages, but that will be it.

There are many ways the monkey platform can grow, and we'll definitely consider adding additional features, but please remember that some decaps look like this :

Allowing humans to type what they see will work there just as well as it works with the current die images. A histogram may fall short for that decap, so please (continue to) understand why we're focusing our efforts on making things do'able for humans rather than incorporating automated techniques that may not be as general as plain ole' typing.

Thanks!
