Comment (by jscipione):

 I can reduce the spacing on the left and right sides, but not by much,
 16px IIRC. So, that will buy us a bit, but not much. I agree that the leaf
 doesn't look good with the increased top spacing, but, if I made the leaf
 dimensions proportional to the rest of the icons it would quickly become
 impractically wide.

 As far as a solution to all this, I am going to need your help because
 technically, it works now, but artistically it doesn't, provided that we
 wish to continue with the cut-off leaf. There isn't an issue with the
 click target size, because, it does increase horizontally larger now, and
 Fitt's Law says that items in the corners are the largest functional click
 targets anyway.

 I could envision increasing the cut-off leaf size with the icon size to a
 point, maybe 32x32 and then floating it vertically centered past that. Or
 we could just keep it as is. The leaf is cut-off at 16x16 and in vertical
 mode at any icon size, but, it floats centered at larger icon sizes.
