Not sure. Should look at it. May be it's related to 3.5 style.

This can go.

Jesse knowns this better.

Is it web2.0 only?

I'm ok.

Anyway, should try with localized version. Russian is often wider a little.

If it's improvement and as we're in earlier 3.8.3 stage then may be it
should go in (if other developers agree).
