on a side note, the knight unit still cannot advance to grand knight, although the changelog says grand knight is implemented.
It sounds like you're not getting the whole of CVS properly.

Check your data/translations/english.cfg file and see if the key 'damage_calculations' is present.

Check to see if data/units/Grand_Knight.cfg is present, and if data/units/Knight.cfg lists it as a possible upgrade.

I know, this issue was closed for version 0.7.1 but I think the question how to deal with odd numbers of hit points will come back sooner or later.
There is a simple way to handle e.g. 6.47 hitpoints:
Just delete 6 hitpoints and there is a chance of 47/100 to delete a seventh one.

this sounds fair, but it doesn't sound KISS...

No, because it will confuse the player.

I also think that the math of rounding adds something to the game.
