Just wondering, what's the output like and does it return for d10 0-9 or
1-10?  Does it handle "d%"?  Is the number of dice optional or must one
feed it "1d8" for example?  Does it return the results of each die or the
total rolled or both?  Can you give it something like "2d8 d12 3d6" and
get a nice formatted output?  Am I asking too many questions?  =>
