Why not use slider - input box combination? You can adjust the slider with
keyboard, so the spinbutton is kinda unnecessary - or you can just insert a
value there..

If we put there a slider _and_ a spinbutton, we need to beware of making the
dialogs too large - not everyone has a 21" screen with high resolution, and
the always-present problem is the screen estate that happens to be too small
all the time (except when you are doing a 24x24 pixel gnome-stock icon :)

Thoughts? I am open to correction and willing to learn new GUI things :)
