I would say we won't take this gnome-libs patch.

Color settings are already set via gtkrc, and settings for GnomeAbout
can already be included in any GTK theme. It's just that most (or all)
of them don't do it.

For padding, I don't think we want to allow people to set individual
paddings; it's just too complex. However some sort of global padding
setting might be OK.
