what exactly do you mean by this, keep it around as an option? The old
citydlg is almost 100k...

I think that it's fairly usable too. When I was looking at it, I had 
some questions about the display on the lefthand side, but I was
only the cleanup man. Tuomas Airaksinen --- as far as I know --- did the
design work. Unfortunately, I don't think he's available until after the
new year, but that doesn't mean that I advocate tabling it until then.

If there are design issues, let's address them, unless there's a simple
method of modularizing the front-end (which is possible I guess, a
setup_widgets() and a setup_widgets_oldstyle() ). But we should probably
address the design issues anyway.

to Raimar: yes, I believe that I had the same exact question as to the
multiline label thing. I check my old mail to see what Tuomas' argument
was. I guess my initial response would be: 'play the first part of a game
with a couple cities'
