New GTK tracker list too space-consuming

Description

The new GTK tracker list uses up too much space, it's difficult to work out.

I suggest that, at least in the non-verbose view, every tracker should be represented by just a single line, such as

    tracker.microsoft.com:6969 8 peers 2 minutes ago, next in 30 minutes

Change History (2)

I'm open to suggestions for improving the new UI, but this propoal is (1) harder for casual users to interpret (what did the 8 peers do 2 minutes ago? ;) and (2) trades vertical space for horizontal space.

Since most torrents only have a couple of trackers, IMO it makes more sense to break things up into a couple of lines, than to try and cram it all on one wide line.

There's probably no "Right" answer here though.

Also, I disagree that the current version is hard to work out:

tracker.openbittorrent.com:80 Got a list of 15 peers 17 minutes ago Asking for more peers in 9 minutes

seems dead simple to me. What part of that seems hard to work out?
