Is there a way of finding out the initial reinforcements?

Hi,

I would like to know the total number of reinforcements to be placed at the very start of the game. I think board.getPlayerIncome() only returns the next chunk of reinforcements to be placed (Or maybe I'm wrong). Is there a way to find it out without having to calculate it for each map type?

I don't think there's a quick call to return this right now.

For a 6 player game, each player will start with ~= 20 * (# of countries / 42)
