The problem with the dice roller is fixed. (Details for anyone familiar
with Perl: I'd assumed that a function returned a string instead of a
reference to an object, so of course the pattern match on the return value
wasn't working.)

As a nice bonus, the dice roller now forwards bounces of requested rolls to
the requesters of the rolls, so you'll know when a roll can't be delivered.

Go ahead and test this if you want---request some rolls to be sent to bogus
email addresses. (Let me know if it still isn't working.)

Thanks for finding this bug.
