Hi,

I would not propose to present the low level information, I would propose
to keep a single summary line per frame, not multiple. The only way to
present multiple lines of a single frame is to use an expandable widget,
but that would probalby require us to replace the GtkCList widget for the
summary pane.

Thanx,
Jaap
