If you want to reduce vertical screen size, I think you could more the
"Call John for formats list" out of "Options" , and always load the
format list when you start johnny or when the <path_to_john_binary> is

May be even the "Edit John's configuration file" could be moved to
"Settings", but I am not sure.

Instead of multiple "_ Use external mode, filter name ___" lines, you
could have just one which gets used for both --single, --wordlist, and
If the user selects "Default" or External, just hide those elements...

But I think higher priority is providing .deb and .rpm packages now.
