As the author of this widget:
The widget is used in less than maybe ten places in KDE, so fixing it might be 
feasible. In most cases removing the margins (or padddings) should do no harm. 
It is a composite widget but supposed to be used as one, so it should have no 
more margins than non-composite widgets.
Can you try fixing the margins in KShortcutWidget and see if this works for 
you? I can then test (most of) the other places where it's used and possibly 
commit the fix. Of course, if you feel like doing that part as well, I won't 
stop you ;)
