I agree though that we should generally strive to downgrade button-
weight on the page.
But I think we need something with visual weight to both separate the
list of collections from the mini-cal as well as anchor the 'New'
text. Otherwise, the 'New' text will simply float in the sidebar.
'New' and 'Remove' are also important buttons.
An alternative way to lighten up the page would be to replace the
Prev / Next buttons in the Dashboard Pagination Area and Main
Calendar Nav Area to be flat arrow icons. Similarly, Show/Hide in the
detail view could be up/down flat arrow icons as well. The
pagination / calendar nav arrows are already in image_grid.png. It
would save us much needed space as well.
As for Remove, I think if we're going to allow users to add
collections, we need to also allow them to remove them. Otherwise,
you can't get rid of collections you accidentally created.
