Can a toolbar receive sizing events? If so it should be possible to
recalc the needed size and reformat the toolbar accordingly.

I don't believe in the "others do it this way so it must be great" philosophy.
In MacOSX it's not a good feature either but generally no problem because
most toolbars can be customized. However this *is* a problem with GNOME right
now because almost none can; ever tried a German ggv? There are not many 
screen which will fit some localized applications.
