That's a good point.

I like that part.

Yes, but the Edit Filter GUI is not very good either. :)
Evolution's filter GUI is much better, and I'd like to see Pan's filters
look like that.  However, I don't think Evolution supports nested filters
(does it, fejj?) so it'll need to be adapted for Pan somehow.

Handling scores in this way would allow us to edit existing score
entries in Pan without punting the user to the scorefile via a text
editor too.

Using the Evolution approach would fix this problem too IMO, since
it only uses one row per criteria that the user selects.

Right.  I sent Tov mail on Friday (or Saturday?) announcing the
string freeze, but he hasn't gotten the translation in yet.

119969 isn't a problem.
