No problem

I like this idea quite a bit

We can do it in stages though.

Again, I like this too.

Probably, I'll think up something.

I'm guessing you will put on the wiki or something.

I'm thinking I will make the button text change and the header as a
stage one, and do the name trimming goodness as a second patch.

So I'll finalise that patch tomorrow (I'm in Australia so a bit of a
time difference), and then take a look at that other.

@Caolán, whats the chance of merging a patch tomorrow?
