Yep. I guess a larger team would make faster and better progress.

They fit well, however, the limitation of a small team with
a desire to maximize the possible output.

I wouldn't know off-hand how to do that. I could certainly
find out. I'd prefer to be working on things relevant to
wrapping up the next release, though.

OTOH, I don't actually understand whereat you would think
such an object is desirable. This sort of screen object does
not exactly evoke any images of many uses that I can
remember ?  I fail to understand the superiority of what you
describe over a standard button+popup menu ?
