I wonder if we could just use a MetricField (rather than a MetricBox)
here instead. That was we already have the option of putting "-nospin"
at the end of the name to hide the up/down spin buttons. You would have
to change the code from MetricBox to MetricField in that case.

Well, they are "fairly" static. The current code uses Ruler::DrawTab to
draw the image, the advantage of keeping things as they are is that the
code could be taught to scale them to fit whatever size fairly easily.
