Entusiasts don't mind running Windows once in awhile.  It's the zealots that
are a problem.  =]

Yes, you did... and you're right, it's a bit of a moving target.  I'm faced
with the problem now of running out of screen space (since I'm trying to
stay compatible with an 800x600 screen) and like the TT3 config program,
it's gotten way too cluttered.  It's not just bad for usability, it's tough
to make a nice cross-platform version with a consistent look.

I'm thinking I'll probably have to switch to a tree view or something one of
these days.  Something that'd allow for a lot of on-screen descriptive text.
It'd probably make sense to do a major re-write like this using WxW... I
just haven't had time to try to learn it.  Something needs to be done.. that
code is really ugly.
