Probably to me ;)

I tried playing with my gui sizes last night. I got it to fit better, 
but it is not pleasing to the eye. It leaves a blue-ish haze around the 
background and you can see distortion at the corners, where with 
overscan, all that is hidden off the screen.

I think 5% should be enough. I think that is what I used on my theme I 
played with along time ago. The text on most screens is just at the 
edge, it is all visible (I think, going by memory), but the box borders 
are off the screen.
