I see. We'll have to inspect what it will really look like in the end.

Sigh... We'll have to check how big the discrepancies are. We use 
notebooks regularly, but in a very strict way so we might be able to 
handle it. I'm an explicit enemy of sizers if the dialog contents isn't 
sizeable at all (33 of 36 dialogs have fixed contents, and those 3 where 
hard work to resize in a sensible way)

Anyhow, it appears that we should wait until you finished your commits 
to see what situation we really have to deal with.
