LM 18 XFCE: Reduce Padding And Gain Screen Real Estate

Linux Mint 18 new "Y" series themes are beautiful, at least IMHO.
But, and then again, IMHO, everything looks huge, maybe because (and logically) they are aiming all their design towards ultra high resolution screens, but I'm running on my trusty Optiplex with the old Apple Cinema Display, that only delivers 1680x1050...

So, I've been working on a customized theme (based on the amazing Mint-Y-Darker) that reduces padding all around.
The first screen shot above shows the regular "Mint-Y" theme, and the one below, my modified slim version of the Mint-Y-Darker one.
