Currently, there is no way to control the aspect ration of the icons or to have
a list like: "Small Icons" if the file selector dialog.
This shows some ideas (although it isn't finished):
Note that the menu button is real:
The Quick Launcher doesn't work that way. :-( It has now been improved and
works correctly with the large panel.
The other stuff is stock. The Panel is 132 pixels. I didn't add any
Application Buttons yet.
