I would tend to agree, but I don't think it would be horrible if we
ended up using it either.

Yeah.   Really we want everything at the top...

Yes, I completely agree.

Luca, do you think you can use your glade-fu to make that?  I tried but

It would be useful to have it gladed up so we can tinker with it.  I am
concerned a bit that it might not work out too well in practice, because
the layout is kind of complex.  While it looks nice in the screenshot,
it could break when the user switches to a different theme, because the
buttons might not line up anymore, or the sliders might not line up.
