[kde-edu]: Fwd: [Kalzium] Redesign of Kalzium

In the last couple of month we added quite some tools to Kalzium. Currently
we have these tools:
-- Greek symbols (alpha, beta...)
-- Numbers (what is '5' in greek?)
Holy shit... That is a lot... :)
Ok, all tools but the PSE-Table are in Dialogs. Why?! I the table so special
in chemistry or more the "maintool" than the 3D-viewer? Perhaps, I don't
know; that is what I want to discuss with you.
Why is Kalzium the way it is? Well, that is just because the table was the
first thing I coded some years ago, the other tools came later. There is no
real reason in it. Therefore Pino and I had a brief discussion that we could
revamp the GUI of Kalzium.
We could for example make the PSE just another tool, make the mainwidget
(that what now the table is in KDE 3.x) an "Overview over all tools" widget
with preview and whatnot. If the use selects a tool this overview-thing
would go away and that selected tool would appear. Not as a dialog but as
the main widget of Kalzium.
(I CC'ed kdeedu because perhaps some there want to take part in the
discussion. But please: Answer to kalzium at kde.org only)
