[Qgis-user] coordinates in both projected and geographic systems

This is a nice plugin/addition.

One possible issue I encountered: if you close the coordinate window  
(if floating) or the view in the toolbar, how can you get the window  
or toolbar view back without an application restart? Intuitively,  
hitting the plugin icon or selecting it from the plugin menu should do  
a check to see if the floating window or toolbar/legend view is  
present and reinitiate as required.

Thanks,
John
