Oww, please don't say that! It has been a lot of work
getting the drawing area to look nice and work efficiently.
In the beginning I was considering different approaches,
including some kind of treeview, a label for each character,
and buttons, but my initial programming experiences along
with irc conversations with Owen and Havoc (of which I have
logs ;) made me to decide on using a drawing area. If
somebody wants to implement it using buttons and it turns
out to be better, that's cool, but I'm not going to spend
time on it.

So. Any other thoughts on accessibility? :)

Ok, I shall.
