Due to the arbitrary file size limit, I haven't been able to attach the theme in progress. Instead, it can be downloaded from http://retro.apebox.org/ubuntutheme.tar.bz2

Other than bug 29792, my main desire is the ability to apply padding to the icon without it affecting the padding of the highlight - try setting padding to 0, and see how bunched together everything looks? I want to increase the padding of the icon so it can "breate" by about 8 pixels, but if I change the padding value, 1) padding applies to the top and bottom (but not right) of the list of items in the center of the styled box, but I don't want vertical padding, and 2) padding applies to the highlight, so whilst I want the grey highlight rectangle to extend to take up the full horizontal space available (as in 0 padding screenshot), i lose this if i add padding to space out the actual menu entries (as in 10 padding screenshot)

gfxmenu implements a partial box model like the CSS box model, at least in name, with settings for padding and spacing. However, it is not possible to differentiate between padding which applies to an item, and to the decorations on that item. For example, when using boot_menu, you cannot set a padding on the menu entries independently of the menu entry background. This is pretty annoying when one wants to highlight an entire row - you cannot use padding, otherwise your highlight has all the padding around it you'd rather applied only to the item.
