I assume that this is dangerous, because although it might look OK, for instance, in Ubuntu, it might be different in Fedora Core. Or don't styles/themes affect things?

Themes affect the font size and color and sometimes widget spacing, but they shouldn't affect alignment.

Would you point me at the documentation for this, please.

All that i know of is at GtkSizeGroup.html
