Although  upstream will probably take long to fix this and 4.6 is not 
near, there may be easy workarounds for the default icons.
What we can do now is see what is the minimum size that works fine and 
shrink the default. I agree it takes up a little bit more than it should

As upstream said, that was not really conceived, it's mostly that way 
for historical reasons. From the times were there were few users and 
'cool' took precedence over 'user friendly'

While I am not strongly opposing a one panel setup, centered and 
autohide is *totally* out of question :)
