I tried to make the theme as clear as possible. After all why you need
boundaries when you can click on the icon+text or mouseover them and see
the boundaries. But you are right to a degree because it the text is
smaller the user wonders why the next item is not closer to the first

Unfortunately this is not as simple as many would think. Images are hard
coded because I'm using the Pixmap engine that exclusively uses already
drawn images. New engine could be coded so it draws exactly the same but
I have no skills to do this. I'm designer only.
