Right. In the Beforetime, there were like a dozen windows you couldn't resize.
You got to admit it's getting better, a little better all the time.

Actually I find it rather *oversized* for all screens except the package
selection page. But yes, things are a bit crowded on that selection page.

Well, maybe we can get Simon to do it:
"And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out
