<head-slap> Thank you.  I never thought of that.  But really, is that 
good enough? Not exactly very discoverable.  And two ways to customize, 
neither of which covers everything?

Should be.  But I'll admit, rightly or wrongly, none of these "issues" 
are things I would spend any time logging on bugzilla.  If a bug doesn't 
kill my app/UX, you get a free pass. ;)

Something I meant to mention in my previous...

Mention was made if using the browser full-screen (F11, I presume). Does 
anyone have any figures/telemetry data for that? Percentage of users 
doing it... of those, how often/length of time... do some always work 
full-screen? Are there some that use the browser both ways?

Reason I ask: The company I work for has a user base upwards of 400K.  
We're confident *nobody* does that.  I'd love to know I had that much 
screen real estate to take advantage of, but I don't.  So based on my 
admittedly limited user knowledge, I'd say any argument that relied on 
that use-case was pretty weak at best.

Thanks again.
