Geometry Manager would be even more useful on mobile since MG doesn't
support screen rotation any more. I don't know if Scott is thinking about
adding that feature to tmC.
I think the menu builder is flat-out weak. It isn't buggy for me, it just
isn't very helpful. I guess it's good that I am building (almost)
everything for mobile, now.
