The icon size enumeration has both small-toolbar, and large-toolbar;
it basically predates the use-configurable icon sizes, but there
might be also some idea here that you might want to switch the
relative size of your toolbar icons without changing your overall
icon scale.

It's listed on; I'd certainly like
to see it, partly because the current GTK+ system has some major 
design flaws in it -- replacing it would be a good thing
regardless of integration issues. (But integration issues also
are important)
