Hi!

I made a patch long time ago... nearly 1 year ago modifing the QS. The aim
was to make them easy to translate but of course the result was not as
*visual* as the current ones.
I used the buttons' icon in the begining of the setting, so the user knew
which button made which change.

Maybe it design helps a bit (if is still somewhere).

My 2 cents :)
