Basic idea of the patch is not to show all signal variant/type combinations in the signal window. Instead there is separate switch for signal variant (semaphore/electric) and separate switch to choose signal type. New signal window also fits better to different sizes of sprites and fonts, distinct GUI elements are being resized independently.

Requires patches from  FS#5733

I would prefer this UI. The signal UI is over-loaded with buttons imho. Also I don't use semaphore signals, so that row of buttons is just visual noise to me :)
