I'd certainly be open to considering changes which don't feel like
they compromise the look/feel, but speaking for those particular
widgets, they're awful wide and the text is small to begin with.
These particular strings are definitely the hardest to deal with in
themes because they are just way, way longer than any other strings--
it's a tough call.  You almost need a custom widget just for these
particular strings.  Anyway, if you want to play with it in Arclight
and propose something in this thread, I'm willing to take a look in
French and English and see how it "feels."
