My opinion? I asked for it!! Commit! :-)

I think that toolbars let you do very crazy things. You can add it as toolbar 
in a given place and user may move it around the place they like. No need to 
share a widget.

The only question is to find a smart way of communicating the canvas and such 
a widget. We are adding a lot of adhoc functionality that is turning the Jack 
canvas further.

About which information to display, why not starting to use the QWebKit 
module? We can either put that information on the wiki or use the new doxygen 
to qthelp converter.

In any case, shouldn't we concentrate on making advances with subnetworks?
