Right now there really isn't a good way to do this. Partly this is
because the stretching and icon size feature is really a special feature
of the icon view only, so there is no "global" icon size setting for
Anyway, I'm not sure this feature should take so much space in the UI. I
mean, it already has a menu item and we already removed the context menu
item in non-desktop folders to unclutter the ui. Wouldn't it be better
to make the current stretch work from the keyboard instead. You could
just handle arrow key presses when the stretch handles are up to mean
"change icon size".
