This has been sort-of discussed before, at least on the
gnome-gui-list. I remember posting at least two times about this
subject, but without any response. :-)

Wouldn't it be better to add something about this to the (upcoming?)
Style Guide? Then these problems would automagically turn into bugs
and developers would have to know about them.
I have already proposed this, but nobody seemed to notice. Is there a
special and/or obvious reason why there should not be a guideline
saying that all the apps should be usable at 800x600? If there is, I
apologize for wasting bandwidth yet another time.
