A container for right, left, top, and/or bottom "indentation" or padding.
With one child widget.

Actually this sounds so simple that I might even try to implement it myself
if nobody else does.

Yes. Are you suggesting that it should be part of GtkAligment instead of a
new widget?

greatly as long as we have one or the other.
