I don't like them at the bottom of the display. Instead, I want them located at the top.

I didn't find any command to config it that way. Are there any?

Or are there any switches in the source files I can config to build one customized version?

@puk: Sorry, but I can't make sense of your comment. What "trio"? – Heptite Feb 28 '12 at 21:20
"Fairly non trivial". It's not quite an oxymoron, but still a little confusing. – puk Feb 28 '12 at 21:41
