Let's get feedback with what has been implemented so far and iterate
on it if there are agreed issues. My main concern at the moment is
that we have complicated the trivial Activity case, in that there is
no longer an option for just providing a single main toolbar. Every
Activity has to now deal with loss of canvas space and dynamic
resizing caused by the secondary activity toolbar design (that's one
reason I didn't like that path).
Who is the poor soul that's going to have to sort out TamTamMini, I
vote for alsroot ;-b
