I agree that a configuration dialog and a $HOME/.ghemicalrc file would be 

Those are also quite easy to do, but it's more difficult to replace the 
current macro-based solution with this new solution. Let's take the 
long/short mousetool labels as an example ; now it can be set like 
"element" or like "el" but it's a compile time choice. How to make this a 
runtime choice when the toolbar is created using a static GtkActionEntry 
array like this (see main.cpp around line 128) :

GtkActionEntry gtk_app::entries1[] =
 	{ "FileMenu", NULL, "_File" },
 	{ "HelpMenu", NULL, "_Help" },
