The trouble is that this means that only 4-5 buttons will fit on the
tool-bar, by default.

I observe that in Gedit, some of the tool-bar buttons are just icons
(New, Print, Redo, Cut/Copy/Paste, Search), while others are accompanied
by text labels (Open, Save, Undo).  This lets them fit more buttons in.
Other Gnome applications do the same thing.

If we are going to use text labels, we should probably implement this.
