I just looked at each of the toolbar items and forgot that most of them 
were even there.  Maybe two toolbars to pick from would help: turn on 
the often used items and then optionally turn on the less used.

overcrowded MS Office applications' ribbons.  The ribbon framework API 
looks fairly straightforward at first glance... that is, if we were a 
native Windows application w/o GTK.
