actually, a green line showing where it could move this turn, a yellow line 
further moves, and a red line where it couldn't move (like warrior over water, 
for example).

I once talked to thue about it, he said something about randomness (like when 
you have
2/3 moves left, you have 66% chance of actually moving over the terrain).

but I guess it can be fudged a little and give an 'estimate' it'd be nice :)
