If this is added, I prefer a list of the differences because it is much less cluttered. For example, in a middle game where each side lost one of each piece and Black lost four pawns to White's three, the display shows just one Black pawn.
Similar to chesspad, and it works really well.
+P = up a pawn
P v R = pawn v rook.
-N = down a knight.
Works even better with pics of pieces.
I think that's a little clearer than your idea of showing a black pawn, if black is down a pawn. Not quite as intuitive, I think.
