This brings up something that's always bugged me:

The button for a `choice' widget looks like:

   [Value Menu]  <value>

Which has always seemed to me to be both excessively long, and basically
kind of confusing.  Even though I _know_ what it means, and have been
customizing stuff for years, it still always sticks out as being awkward.

How about just using the obvious thing, the name of the widget?

   [choice]  <value>

At the least, it should only be a single word; as it is, the appearance
of things like face widgets (which have lots of choice widgets) can
often look completely dominated by all these massive buttons...

Next to fried food, the South has suffered most from oratory.
