Due to a bug item some changes are being proposed to the edit person dialog.
Much to important to just commit and get reaction afterward, I'd like to know if I should continue the changes I tried locally.
See bug item http://www.gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=2642

For those not wanting to open the bug item, my comment was:
did some changes too I would suggest for 3.1:
1/edit name dialog button after the 'Preferred Name' Title.
2/combobox selection of suffix/prefix
3/combobox selection of patronymic/title
What I still would do:
*Update the title of the widget as the name types in changes to the name.
*Remember last usage of the combobox selection, so if person used patronymic, next editor opens with patronymic preselected.
*Add Lock icon to the preferred name also? This is something that is on the name editor only now?
I don't like the design of Jerome for the following reasons:
* The screen becomes too wide. It should fit on a screen of 800x600
* Family and given name become too short. Spanish people need long entry fields, you want to see what you type
The new dialog is some pixels smaller than the current one in English.
People agree with this approach?
