Awww, I was just about to say that.  I guess I can scrap the email I was
writing :(

I didn't really think too much about it before, but I saw this mentioned
not too long ago as an addition to the Industrial Firefox theme(1) and I
really liked it.  The text isn't necessarily essential to knowing what
the button's supposed to do, but it makes it stand out, and it's a
bigger target so it's easier to hit.  Now I've noticed that Evolution
does this with the toolbar buttons when you're using the "Text beside
icons" mode, only putting text next to the most commonly used buttons.  

Good job Jorn, or whoever suggested adding this to Muine.
