Yeah, we're not yet in the phase where we start to rename variables, there are still more pressing issues ;)

Yeah, I think Eric did a test with kvm or qemu.

Just built it and ran it (I think it's an ubuntu-specific thing that glade is so broken here).
Honestly, I don't like either of the two options much. What was planned from the beginning – I simply haven't had time for it though until 1.3.0 – was using another GtkScale for this setting.
I've implemented this locally and it looks much nicer (obviously it shows the percentage below the scale), so I think that's what I'm going to push.
