Bug Description

While it is nice to have the blocks wrapping (so that they do not become extremely long!), some of them do not look nice when wrapping. The CommandBlockMorph>>fixBlockLayoutWrap and ReporterBlockMorph>>fixBlockLayoutWrap need to be adjusted.

Specific flaws:

- the number of lines needed is figured out but sometimes the last line is left empty.
- it would be nice if items were horizontally centered within their block
- if you change a dropdown list from a short name to a long name and a block in the palette area is layed out different, the spacing in the palette is not adjusted.

Also take a look at ArgMorph>>fixArgLayout. Subclasses change the background colour of the argument morph, but the layout is never fixed.

The layout of blocks has been improved for Enchanting 0.2, although this bug may not be completely fixed yet.
