Scanner Model Status Menu

The Model Status "menu" doesn't actually do anything aside from displaying relevant information about the currently loaded shape model. The various entires are:

MODEL DIR
The directory where the current model is stored.
MODEL
The filename of the current model.
MODEL TYPE
The model's type, which will be one of three possibilities:
  • Local -- a min/max radial model with constraints only between adjacent radials.
  • Maximal -- a min/max radial model with constraints between all pairs of radials.
  • Probabilistic -- a probabilistic radial model.
COMMENT
Displays any comments that were stored with the model.
RADIAL ANGLE
The angle between adjacent radials in the model.
CONTOURS IN MODEL
The number of contours which have been used to construct the model.

(Since this menu is for information purposes only, it may be more appropriate to link it to a "Model Info" entry on the Model menu. At the very least, we should make it clear to the user that clicking on the entries does not -- and is not *supposed* to -- do anything.)
