Device skill is given as a number on your character sheet, so you don't need to calculate that (it derives from INT, class, and race though); the object level is in object.txt.
IMO this would be a useful improvement. It may not be too hard to add, I'll look into it. The question is what is a more useful display?

option 1: "...a lightning bolt that does 6d6 * 1.35 damage"

option 2: "...a lightning bolt that does an average damage of 28.35"

option 3: "...a 6d6 lightning bolt that does adjusted average damage of 28.35"
