[Okular-devel] Layout of the toolbar

as you might know already, Okular's main toolbar is basically the one you can 
find in KPDF, with the few changes to the labelling of two zoom actions, and 
to the order of the zoom combobox.
Thus, it is:
Open (recent, dropdown) || Back | Forward || Zoom combo | Zoom out | Zoom 
in || Fit width | Fit page || Browse tool | Zoom tool | Select tool
(quite some, yep)

Now, basing on facts like:
- many people usually confuses the left/right arrows as being the 
previous/next page actions
- http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92620
- http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139825
- the Fit * actions are already in the zoom combobox
- the new Text Selection tool might be more used (I think)
- ... add your opinions here ;)

I would like (and I suppose to not be the only one) to give the Okular toolbar 
a new fresh look.

My personal idea would be:
Open (recent, dropdown) || Previous page | Next page || Zoom combo | Zoom 
out | Zoom in || Browse tool | Zoom tool | Select tool | Text Selection tool
with the option of removing one of Zoom tool/Select tool.

What do you think?
Don't be shy and drop your ideas here! :)
