it would be nice if we could also try to get some work done on a new
widget for entering dimensions. Our current solution of a spinbutton
combined with a combo-box for the units takes too much space and is
uncomfortable to work with. If I remember correctly, Simon has some code
that implements a parser for numbers and units. So perhaps this could be
turned into a nice widget for the next release. That would allow us to
get to more compact dialogs and it would certainly improve usability.
