With the introduction of the gtk.Expander widget in 2.4, it seems almost
necessary. I'm trying to implement a dialog that under certain
conditions, requires the gtk.FileChooser (much like the new "saveas"
dialog in 2.4). When the gtk.Expander expands, all is well and the
dialog expands with it. But when the gtk.Expander is contracted again,
the dialog remains large and there are huge ugly spaces between the
widgets inside it. This is when I want the dialog to 're-shrink'.
