Yep. It's not too easy to have /any/ idea of where to put things when
you don't know the fonts/sizes being used by other plugins; hopefully
the config system will let us have access to things like that. Somehow.
Hrm. :)

I'll leave it to Ed to talk about. I'm sure it's there in response to a
problem he encountered with capturing the clicks. Ed?

No probs. (I think more of that patch is Ed's code rather than mine, btw)
