Hmm... Are You sure? Does the city grow when the granary is full or when
it "tips over"? Before the number of turns until starvation when
food_surplus is negative was the number of turns until the granary was
empty - which is wrong - starvation is one turn after that, right?
So I just changed turns til growth in the same way without really
thinking it through...

Well, they'd be nice anyway...

I'd really like it if someone else (Mike?) could take care of this

I agree, did it this way for now since it was a real pain to get it to
work moving items with the mouse - I want to do it like that when I get
the time though...

Umm... What buttons? This problem should be the same for keys or other
buttons though...

Yes, this sound like a good idea until I get moving items with the mouse

Nope, and I think it should be both on the same page and disabled by
default... Perhaps renamed to Help or something like that... The idea is
that You should be able to enable this fast and painlessly when You need
to know how things work...

I don't think this can be affected... Not easily anyway...

Now take a deep breath, smile and don't take life so seriously... :)
