And because I love reminding myself WHY we switched to Qt to begin with...
(and occasionally want to make Tomaz and Thiago proud):

I implemented this last part real quick. And if you look at the three
commits that it took to do so, maybe you'll agree that this was indeed
"real quick". This may not be the best way to do it - but I found it just
amazing HOW EASY it was to add this.

The biggest part of my changes literally was to make the disclaimer
optional in the notes that we show (as that seemed odd to show while you
are planning the dive - and it wasted precious space).

So now the calculated waypoints are no longer in the dive planner points
table - that one only shows the points you enter. Instead the full plan is
shown in the area that usually holds the dive list.

Still interested in that. Just because I spent a little time to implement
part of my proposal doesn't mean I don't want to hear better ideas...
