Good design and forethought is never a minor issue. :) Have you ever seen
those lawns where someone landscapes by occasionally adding a gnome here one
day, a bush here another, maybe a pink flamingo next month. Looks like crap
Besides through these ramblings Doug has given me an idea. In vertical mode
the panel's height could be expanded, but in horizontal mode the width could
with the buttons drawn in columns. I'm interested to hear more about the UTF
char selector though. I haven't seen that yet.
But I think your'e right in that I should shut up now. I have enough
information to start hacking. Thanks everyone.
