BTW in the latest Outlook they use a similar approach.  Buttons are
stacked on top of each other by default, but if you drag the handle down
the buttons progressively switch to "icon only" mode.  Each step down of
the handle bar causes the button at the bottom of the stack to switch to
"icon only" and line up in a line under the stack.

It's kind of an odd UI but it would address our problem...
