	Quite - for me, it is pretty un-acceptable to have our credits in a
place that no-one can find them :-) Personally, I'd prefer to have a
static document that we can load that has a long list of (film-style)
credits - perhaps across many columns -> and some pretty formatting, and
'thanks' etc.

	When we have a nice layout engine - no need to use VCL to render our
credits I think :-)

	I would love an 'easy hack' to use something like the "Legal
Information" menu entry, to have a full list of credits for
contributors, that is easily accessible - perhaps by a button in the
'About' dialog.

	Would that be interesting ? :-)
