Thinking out loud... :)  Is there any valid situation where the entered
information would not end with ":" ?  Since the space is a coded rule,
could the lack of ":" at the end be used to 'validate' the entered data?
But... then there's the possibility ":" could be entered at the end... :(

Scratch that...  non-editable sounds like the right answer...

Or in clawsrc:
with ": " the hard-coded rule.  
No idea how this would impact translations though...
