iTunes 9 - Hidden Text

I have to say, that I'm a little ticked that the zoom button makes the iTunes window an awkward size instead of switching between the mini player. I decided it might be work a look through the strings in the iTunes binary to see if there was a bit of text relating to a .plist setting that might make me happy. I didn't find what I was looking for, but I did find some unusual text.

The first text I found was "In Memory of Tom Dowdy. We miss you Tom.". I wonder if this is somehow accessible through the UI, although I doubt it since text comes from localized resources. It's probably just a const someone put in there. It is null terminated, for what it's worth.

I found one other block of text that was interesting. I have no idea what they would be using this for:
