chubbiness reduction


I know many people have expressed dismay that gtk and gnome apps are
so chubby (wasted space).

One reason is that the "xthickness" and "ythickness" fields in
GtkStyle are 2, which means all bevels and such are 2 pixels. Some
themes use a 1-pixel bevel, but the bevel still takes up 2 pixels of
space, because while in theory you can change xthickness and
ythickness from a theme engine, in practice if you do that a bunch of
widgets get screwed up.

So, a useful project would be to hack your copy of GTK (preferably the
HEAD version) so that in gtkstyle.c xthickness and ythickness default
to 1. Then make testgtk work again with this setting.
