Thanks you and Christoph for bringing the cool ideas too :)

I'll have a look at how the arrow is actually drawn... it would really
help not to use a picture here, but a symbol or we'll have troubles with
the high contrast UI (which I still haven't done).

But I agree with you on the fact that we need a black plus: the standard
one is hard to be seen.

Yep, I'll fix that one
