#198 Allow variable width padding on panel separator

Kevin Knerr

Please consdier adding a preference option to pad the panel separator.

The separator in lxpanel 0.5.10 is far too narrow for my personal use. My current workaround is to use "spacer separator spacer" to gain enough visual space on the panel (as well as buffers for clicking on what I actually intended).

At simplest, a single parameter could be used to specify the number of pixels to add on either side. At most robust, separate parameters for each side could be provided. (This would allow conserving space when the neighboring applet provides sufficient borders on its own.)

If the default were left at 0, that would avoid breaking existing configuartions, while gaining the ability to tweak as needed.

Thanks for your consideration!
