I agree that the old presentation of the arrows looks better. Even if it
may take a moment the first time or two for a new user to work out the
function of the double arrows, it will quickly become obvious, after which
the old layout really seems more functional, since it's simpler. I do see
the point of moving the week number selector to the top, though - although
that might not be so easy if the old arrow arrangement is retained.
