      I personally agree that there should be a stat-purchase method of
      generation.  FYI - the feature is already on the feature request list
      (it's number 23, listed under GUI/Program, called "support purchase type
      methods of stat generation).  How Bryan implements it is his perogative,
      though I happen to agree with Arcady on the point-buy calculator
      thing.  Another method would allow you to set custom methods of generation
      for stats in addition to those in the DMG - how that would be integrated
      though throws a big wrench into the works.
