What? No real screenshot?
And what's with the Comic Sans MS font? It is my understanding that it's loathed by all graphic designers...
(I've seen similar mockups in the past with the same font, is there some software that helps create such mockups?)

You give me credit where none is due. I just retraced the existing one from the Mouse Model
wiki page, then you heavily modified/improved it.
OK then, so here are some screenshots.
What it looks like after installing the module and opening FreeCAD.
Placing the mouse cursor over it, a rounded square appears, and after a second a tooltip.
Clicking on the square brings a menu to quickly change the navigation style.
This is exactly as I envisioned it. I just played with it for 5 minutes, but I can't see how it could be improved further. Actually: would it be a good idea to replace the tooltip with the following text for each entry:
Click to change the navigation style.
Or some other phrasing explaining its use?
One of the huge advantages I see with this (apart from the fact it gives a visual indicator on which navigation style is active) is that it's working in sketch editing mode. Currently, the contextual menu in sketch editing mode does not provide the navigation menu, you need to exit the sketch to change the navigation style, then return to sketch editing mode.
Thanks for working on this triplus.
