Now that I know what a style property is (it isn't documented anywhere
or at least I couldn't find the relevant docs :/) I'd like to have that
changed more than ever:
A style property seems to be nothing more than a theme's way to control
how to displays widgets, at least if I got the few information I found
So it wouldn't even require any change to GTK+'s API but just to it's
default style properties. And as between GTK+ 2.0 and 2.2 the default
selection color has been changed - which affects style properties, too,
I don't see any reason why changing this particular parameter conflicts
with the promised API/ABI stability.
Maybe we can even change GtkDialog's "button_spacing" style propery at
the same time to it's HIG_DEFAULT.
