This also shows the weakness of the layout files system. The file does
not include some changes I've made since I helped you. In particular for
security related features (PGP and S/MIME) — the related banners are
never shown. It also shows that I should add some kind of versioning for
these files, so I could at least reject out-of-date layout files.
I've added an edited file, but it is untested and I haven't checked the
details. I have little time right now, but I thought it would be best if
I replied quickly.

Not much I can do about the tooltips since it's controlled by OS X
(other than implementing custom tool tips). Not sure how the user should
interpret message-related indicators on the arcs. The nodes correspond
to messages? Or was that a typo?
