Well, iTunes also has their search thingy along the top, instead of on
another line as we do.   So they don't really have any reason *not* to
align them.

I personally like the Show/Hide browser button.  For some reason I use
it more often than I would if it was a menu item.  That doesn't mean I'm
completely attached to it though.

Well, we should consider any UI changes carefully - the current UI was
the product of a very long discussion :)

So in the interim, if you could revert your patch, I would appreciate
it.  I think by itself, it is worse than before.  However if we are able
to solve the problems it raises, then I'll be happy with it.

And speaking of, if anyone has any ideas for improving the current
progressbar on the bottom right, I'm interested.  We do need some way of
giving feedback, but right now it seems to somehow disrupt the visual
balance a bit.
