It looks okay, but I'm not a huge fan of the idea. It seems
counter-progressive to have "make everything the way they used to be
options!" I'd rather identify what's wrong with the existing toolbar,
and address that. For instance, I think a split-out "Smiley" button
would appease more than 90% of the complaints. Just giving the old,
sucky, UI as an option whenever we make a change isn't likely to work
