Hi Kendy, Mirek,

great idea and a great list of things you've done!

All nice and low-key, like a statusbar should be. Thnaks, you two.

Here, I would like to propose two things:
* make Insert mode harder to trigger, for instance, by having to use
Shift+Ins (instead of just Ins)
* remove the inidactor wholesale

Do we really need indicators for the selection modes at all? They are
sufficiently hard to trigger and a sufficiently minor use case to
ignore them in the main window, I think.

> - improved Windows 7 look (nicer menus + toolbars there, make use of the
>  drawing into the non-client area)

I took a look at it... nice, but currently also unusable, because the
text can't be read.
