Summary0000522: Redesign the interface

A massive undertaking, but it might be worth completely redesigning the entire user interface? It'll have a sort of white Metro-look, like some of my other apps.

Did some experimenting and here's what I've come up with as a preliminary test; took way too long to get the Acrylic tinting working, but it looks... alright? The tint colour and opacity/blending can be changed to any value.

If you're a licensed user and would like to test it for yourself, then select the Metro Test item within the Extras menu on the left of the main window.

Alright, the plan is to redesign the interface without actually rewriting the entire application; the above translucent style won't be used as they would take a rewrite and so a half-way medium would be taken. All of the icons would need to be replaced, too... just that alone would be, uh, yeah...
