By looking at the screenshot I don't think this is true; to the contrary, I
like the look with more space around the buttons, and expect that I would
find it easier to use because it's (a) a bigger target, but more
importantly, (b) I find it a challenge sometimes to find a tool in the newer
versions because many of them tend to blend together for me.  I think more
spacing like this makes them more distinct and easier to discern.
