I would suggest making it be controlled by a Setting rather than
#ifdefs. I thought one existed already, but if it doesn't, we can add
one. Another possibility might be using the theme to query for this
info, although I know we would like to preserve the gap painting on
Safari for Windows. Therefore a Setting is probably best.
Keep in mind that eliminating the gaps will give you a pretty ugly
irregular selection in a lot of places. Do what you want in Chrome,
but make sure it's a setting and that you don't change Safari for
Windows in the process.
