I think making Task Navigator thinner would also require new theme.
Besides the TN graphics, the Desktop and titlebar gfx elements would
seem to depend from the current size.  The installed plugins also
expect at least a certain width into which their icons fit.

So, maybe the new feature would be to make TN width into themable
property... Then somebody could make a "thumbless" theme. ;-)
