Go scorer (improvement)

Hello to all Go players.

A small improvement in the Go scorer : Komi (7.5 points) is now added to White score and the program says who 'probably' wins !

Also a small bug corrected in the count algorithm, about a few unknown points...

In example, you can score this exciting game Vorobev -Steveson :

Just remove these groups : n8 m9 g18 r18 g17

Score is 183 to 178 (+ 7.5) -> White wins by 2.5 points. (verified with a viewer)

Very nice. Is it still necessary to have both horizontal and vertical scores?

Actually both methods will return the same score for closed positions only (after removing dead groups), but it can also estimate an early position by sharing out undecided territories. There, the two methods may return different values.
