i didnt mean to spur arguments over the ui being good or bad mate. meant  
more or less is there a way to bring back the feel of 1.x clients. i like  
having everything in a pop up floater. not crammed into a bar that forces  
me to keep it there in one spot. i am not downing any of the ui changes. i  
think that the ui changes were done to make it easier for beginning users.  
but after using SL for over 4 years now i dont think i am a beginner. I  
just want my old detached floaters all over my screen in a very messy very  
ugly manner. lol. i suppose it is just time to start working on it and  
stop asking. LL and the others here have already told me that it may be  
possible but is not going to end up in the main viewer. thats fine with  
me. i dont need it to be in the main viewer. i dont use the main viewer. i  
dont trust 3rd party devs and i sure dont trust LL devs. not with a  
prebuilt binary. there is too much risk. so ill compile the latest branch  
myself and work on making my floaters the way i know them from before.  
thanks all.
