tasklist widget button size

Hey all,

Our current tasklist widget has the annoying habit of creating task
buttons that always span the maximum available width. To me this looks
a bit strange.

Today I took a quick look at the code and it appears to be very easy
to change it. There are two things I could do and I'd like to hear your
opinion on what would be preferable.

1) Give buttons their requested width if possible. This can still give
very wide buttons, for instance when you run a terminal that shows its
path in the window title.

2) Have a maximum button width (arbitrarily chosen, 200 seems a good
value). This is what windows does. I think I'd prefer this one.

What do you think?
