I reorganized the preferences window somewhat, trying to keep
related items together (for instance, display Meteo in menubar vs
dock should be with the rest of the display options; global units
should be with weather options, etc). I also made some extensive
wording changes to the Alerts tab, and removed most
"explanatory" text from the interface. I should probably go back
and add tooltips or smaller, less obtrusive text.

In the process I have probably broken a lot of the interface, as I
do not know how to re-establish Interface Builder connections
after cutting and pasting controls between tabs (something I
would dearly love to know).

Prototype MainMenu.nic attached.

    Actually, since a nib is a package, you have to stick it in
    some archive before uploading.
    I already did some work on this, but after you upload your
    version, I'll see if I can put the two together.

    I *know* I zipped everything up, but must have attached the wrong file.
    This is tragic - I spent a couple hours on it, but I didn't keep it (since I
    was unable to make it functional). I'll try to remember all of the changes I
    made and redo them.

    Before you do anything, download my modified version from
    the patches section. That way we won't do duplicate work.

    Here is a new NIB file. I'm pretty sure it's *not* like my original one, but in
    many ways I think it might be better. I did start from lensovet's NIB
    (thanks!), so all changes should be merged.

    Note that my NIB is NOT functional - I broke quite a bit of stuff along the
    way, which is documented in an included ReadMe.

    Thanks. I'll take a look at this over the weekend.

    I never actually looked at this before. Too bad. It's excellent! I will hopefully incorporate it into the next release. Thanks!

    I looked at this for the 1.5.0 update. I really like the changes but it appears to need considerable tweaking of the code to get it to work with this version.
