I'm glad to hear that Evaluate Notebook is coming back. That's something 
that I use every day, and I had to go and edit the to get 
it back.

Here's something I'd like to see in the Preferences: the ability to 
globally turn on (or off) the EditBar and RulerBar. I (and almost 
everyone I know) likes the EditBar always on, and I know some folks who 
also like the RulerBar always on. (Toggling them on the Window menu 
applies only to the active Window.) I know they can be set globally in 
the Option Inspector, but to me these seem Preference worthy.

Oh, and while I'm at it: an "open file" icon would be a nice addition to 
the EditBar.
