That will still depend very much on the width of those buttons. Here's
minimum-width Greek dialog with such layout:


> [x] Highlight all [x] Match case [ ] From cursor [ ] Selection only

I think I read somewhere it is not good for usability to order radio/check
boxes horizontaly, as it makes it harder to see which text binds to which
box. And it can look very uneven when streched, as on the Greek screenshot
