this patch changes the button bar to draw in a viewport. the point of the patch was to remove the display dependancy on the BB (so lists wouldnt need to know if the BB is present or not when it chooses how high to draw...)

the problem i've hit is I cant think of a nice way to tell the viewport screens (well, just list) that the BB is to be drawn or not without affecting the "old" screens.

if someone can think of a good way to do it please comment...
This task depends upon

Additional comments about closing:  partially accepted... the BB is now drawn in its viewport, but there is still a dependancy on the screens struct

Can you clarify what is meant by "button bar"? Is that another term for the status bar?
