This is the same icon as 1.x.  I didn't like it when I made it, and I still 
don't.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.  I'm stumped.

You mean as a separate mode?  <ctrl> mouse zooms X only.  <shift> mouse zooms 
Y only.  Does this work for you?  Is this what you meant?

Can you send a screen shots of how these dialogs appears on your screen?  They 
look OK on mine.

A list would be very helpful.

OK.  Can you give me some examples?  I havn't looked at it much.

--png and --print are now in svn.  Let me know if there are others.

I'll also look into this.

Progress has been slow, but not completely stopped :-)  We just got word of 
renewed funding, so I need to look for someone.
