Hi Giacomo,
Actually, I think you can help me. Take one screenshot and start Gimp.
Make decise, is it portrait or landscaped (fullscreen / default
statusbar). Cut and paste elements. Use text tool and check different
fontsizes. Count number of commands. Maybe do some sorting for
commands, which must be always visible, which are in some dropdown
menu. (or toggleable toolbar rows?). How menus are used? How small
command-icon we can use?

btw: Is there way to tune scrollbars width in one program only or it
is binded to theme? Because nethack is not for finger, one must use
stylus. So we need more space and narrow scrollbars.
