I think the canonical example would be buttons like Send in KMail and 
Back/Forward in Konqueror.  I would like to see this added if only so we can 
simplify the toolbars a little in some KDE programs, and then use the extra 
space for the "major" actions.

IMO these buttons should be bigger than the rest of the buttons on the 
toolbar, which doesn't happen with any of the current buttons (except for 
Text Under Icons for icons with long text).  This solution allows us to make 
the important buttons larger (Fitt's Law) while not wasting vertical space.

Although this isn't necessarily a glaring issue per se, it is one of those 
little touches that we can add to make the whole desktop environment more 
pleasing, IMHO.
