Hi Sam,

	Ooh - another nice patch that belongs on ux-advise quickly. And - UX
guys, it seems you have someone who cares about UI here ... lets see how
things pan out here.

	Sam - some of these require a little thought by the UX guys, but I
think some other things would be rather less controversial; so - if eg.
we could add a 'match case' check-box to the 'find bar' (mirroring
Firefox's) I'm sure that'd be trivial to get approved/ committed.

	Also UI team - I'd love some more thought into the "find next" "find
previous" icons; and some better artwork there, or even plain text [ we
have lots of horizontal space at this point I think ] - cf. what Firefox
does here. [ oh, I notice there is also a nice wrap-around notification
in firefox there - but perhaps I'm just greedy ]

	Sam - if you need more code pointers to adding funky widgets in there,
happy to help [ best to poke on IRC #libreoffice-dev, irc.freenode.net -
mmeeks ]
