[Usability] Re: Mini UI reviews

Thanks Calum,

Since my brother, Behnam 'ZWNJ' Esfahbod, have been playing with
gucharmap recently, and tweaking the About dialog and other UI
too, I will leave it to him to work on the UI review with you.
He's on a trip to the end of the weekend, but I belieave 17UTC
suits him almost every day. CCed.
