OK, understood. I just want to clarify that I support the idea of replacing the
original single mode toolbar with the new contextual single, regardless of
whether it supports customization or not, and regardless of the way it's
implemented, be it a classic TB or a NB. With my patch I just tried to find a
quick solution for the immediate loss of customization for those who do care
about it.

The original single mode toolbar pretends to be a single-line UI solution, but
in fact it's not, as it still depends on other contextual toolbars to appear. I
don't think that users who want a single-line solution are happy with something
like this. Worse, the popping contextual toolbar make the UI jumping, as noted
in Bug 124835, which is unacceptable by any mean. In addition, the current
single mode toolbar is static, and it has controls for the text context (font
name, size, alignment etc.). The result is that those controls stay on screen
even when they're not applicable (e.g when a shape is selected), taking an
expensive screen space. Worse, when you double click on a shape to type text, a
shape text contextual toolbar appear, making the text controls appear twice on

So whatever we decide wrt implementation, I still support removing the original
single mode toolbar.
