We've agreed to evolve LibreOffice over time, so that means no big bang
You're still free to prototype, of course, but I hope you understand that
it's unlikely that your proposal will be implemented in whole.

As for the button bar, it seems that we all have very different ideas about
how to solve the problem and we should be careful not to end up with an
endless argument.
The decision, of course, rests with Kendy. However, if he allows, we could
do a very quick whiteboard, with the call for proposals on Friday and then
analysis and tentative design on the IRC chat.

Kendy, what do you think?
