For that matter, what is the advantage of a toolbar anyway?  Has any
research been done to show that they are useful?  I've always felt that it
is just as easy to memorise a key combination as it is to memorise the
icon/position of a toolbar icon.  Key combinations use a lot less
real-estate...  I would rather use that space to put informative displays
