Toolbar or ribbon

The current version of MW is using several toolbars.
The placement of the toolbars is not working very well.
This needs to be fixed of course. Perhaps moving to WPF (see http://mapwindow4.codeplex.com/discussions/277951) will fix this as well.

An other option is to move to a Ribbon.
Ribbons were a huge hype a few years ago, but they don't seem to be used a lot these days.
If we can manage the ribbon through the (updated) plug-in architecture I don't see any objections to move to a Ribbon. Perhaps we can support both and let the user decide which one it wants to use.

If we can make the exe as slim as possible we can even create two executables: one with a toolbar and one with a ribbon.
