What I was thinking was that we move the language prefs out of general and 
into advance, and move the tab pref into general, as its use is far more 
general than the language prefs (which to be honest i don't quite even 
understand, but I'm a stupid american :) ) Also can we please add a pref for 
the download folder to the general page. I think this is something that alot 
of users will find legitimately useful.

This is going to thoroughly suck. Basically we need to make the icon view in 
the editor keynavigatable with arrow keys (see nautilus for example) and 
enable adding of toolbar items via context menus. Also we need to find a way 
to let users use the keyboard to move through the toolbars when in edit mode 
using the keyboard and arrow keys. 

Sort of related, we should support tabbing between the toolbars and the view 
pane. I suspect this will need to be done in egg-editable-toolbar. Also 
there is no way to get out of a text entry in the toolbar using the keyboard 
to access the next toolbar item.

I think the important thing here is the UI. If the UI stinks the feature 
shouldn't go in until after 1.0.

I like the idea of being able to select multiple topics in the topic 
selector to increase the number of shown bookmarks. However I think this 
could wait till after 1.0 since it requires the user to know how to make 
multiple selections in the list (which most don't I assume). So i guess we 
can punt this.

The current design works pretty well. Maybe after 1.0 we can get that column 
choosing code to work.
