Icon view and List view are correct technical terms. But I'm not sure they 
are obvious to users. But lets keep them there and do some testing with 
2.0 to see if they are confusing to users.

I'd like to see the desktop font being easily changeble by the user 
withough having to hack gtkrc files. It should probably be in a capplet 
that controls other fonts in the system. The other fonts I'm not so 
worried about, since I don't think there is much reason to change them 
from the normal font you use.

We have regressed quite a lot in the tree view and the list view. These 
need some loving.
