Yeah, I agree with Nick here -- the GNOME HIG tends to be a bit 
padding-crazy.  But we should at least have consistency among Xfce apps, 
even if we don't go with the same amount of padding GNOME does.

Diego was working on a HIG for panel plugins a while ago... maybe could 
do something similar for Xfce dialogs.
