I did notice a few issues, however. For one, mousing over a file in the file list in a way that causes alt text to appear seems to cause other Golly windows (like the pattern information window), if open, to hide behind the main window.
Also, the descriptions for many of the Larger than Life patterns (which are super cool, and remind me of SmoothLife), seem to be taken straight from Mcell, which sometimes results in wrong descriptions of things like the colors of the cells.

That would have the downside of only allowing 36 neighbours unless symbols get involved. I dunno, maybe they could be optional.
