Bug Description

When resizing the icons in the launcher, the gap between icons seems to stay constant. Since it was designed with large launcher icons in mind, the gap appears too large when the icons are reduced in size.

Please review the gap for the case of the smallest and largest icon sizes, define an interpolation algorthm and ensure the gap resizes to fit the desired look of the launcher across the range of supported sizes.

Can we please have values for this?

@thumper; the scaling of the gap should be proportional to the scaling of the launcher down to a minimum of 3px (this is so that when dragging and dropping icons, between icons there can be: 1px gap, 1px insertion line, 1px gap).
