Thanks, I'll give it a shot.  Honestly, the -wide change is probably 
nearly identical to the non-wide theme change because the icon positions 
are probably only shifted but are the same relative to each other.  I 
only really avoided touching it because at first glance, the vertical 
positions aren't identical between buttons like in the non-wide themes 
and I didn't want to blindly change something at 2am :)
