Hi. I don't fully get how this patch changes UI behaviour, but maybe that's
because I really need to sit down and have a look at the new quick screen,
however I can't do that at the moment as I like to run a custom build, so
i'm not going to update untill the patches I put in that build are up to
date, however I am looking forward to having a look at the quick screen.
One thought that has already occurred to me though is are the settings
literally just in a huge list, or are the settings actually catagorised?
