No it doesn't at all
Really the menubar was built with the GtkItemFactory in the initial CVS
import but i removed it and preferred to make it manually cause at that
time i didn't think that translating it'll be possible ;)
But yes i'll be happy to return back to that way, In addition that it's
more easy to add menuitems to it

I can get the idea about removing the toolbar options but i really can't
get it for the window placement, But adding support for the GNOME
toolbar style'll increase the libraries required by katoob.
The same for gconf "althought it'll make my work easier instead of
writing a parser for the configuration file" , I'll force the user to
install many libraries to run katoob
i can't really give a word about the toolbar or gconf "personally i like
both ideas"
I'll have to wait for other members' opinion

Maybe an arrow, like Yudit instead?
 * It would be nice with a keybord shortcut to change direction
yes they are not for this but the arrows carry a "back & forward" label
and my graphics designing requires petty,
I'll add the keyboard shortcuts too, that's nice
