UI enhancement suggestions

There are some improvements to the GUI I want to suggest; I simply merged these into one bug, feel free to reorganize that into multiple bug reports. ;-)

  • The list of VMs on the left side of the GUI takes up so much space that I need to scroll the list. The solution would be simple: Allow for a "small icons" view that reduces the size of the OS icons by 50% and puts the name and state of the VM in just one line of text, taking up half the vertical space.
  • Similiarly, on OS X, I would like to see the toolbar icons without the text, saving space as well. This is a minor issue, because I have simply hidden the toolbar completely.
  • The panel in the main window (on OS X) on the right side should have some padding one the right side.
  • Finally, It would be useful to have to option to drag a particular VM icon from the list and drop it in the filesystem, creating a shortcut. On OS X this should create a ".app" bundle with a script to start the VM; I've made such bundles for my personal use, but it would be nice to create these just using drag&drop.
