after you answer for me patch, I come back here

I unterstand your position, perhaps it possible to find a solution or i 
make a modified theme only for the french communauty

you say "a lot of text placement in Arclight by leaving textareas 
hanging out in space"
but it's the problem with this part of theme, the text area is small and 
the text option is big. If you want to give a good information to use 
the text option is for me very important.
see the situation with the unmodified theme


to make all in order, it's necessary to truncate title (Groupe de 
stockage) and the text option (stocker dans le groupe de stockage par 
and i'm not agree that . I preferred like my proposal sort the title out 
the text area


or suppress the title

another solution: give a more textarea during the highlight like in the 
Mythbuntu menu

But it's your decision
