Yeah, I guess a decent amount of this is personal preference.  I 
wouldn't call myself a pixel-nazi, but I do prefer less 'whitespace' in 

As it turns out, the WM Tweaks dialog didn't grow too much as I feared; 
it looks pretty decent.  The scrollbar on the compositor tab will save 
people on low-res screens, though we *really* need to figure out how to 
get it to autosize to full-height if space is available, cuz it looks 
really dumb as-is.
