That sounds like a good idea to me!

For the toolbar in the conversation window, I have added a 'Group
Items'/'Ungroup Items' in the context menu. The selection from the menu
is remembered, and reflected immediately for all the toolbars. This
looks like a good change to me. I have committed this change (a1d36257).
But do feel free to make farther changes to it, or replace it with a
better fix.
