Yes, Increasing the visibility of the flash was my primary target here. The
patch results in relatively more significant amount of padding in case of

Also I think the horizontal padding makes it go better with the existing
vertical pad. This is a subjective view, so we can have a configuration option
which exposes a multiplier to a unit character length lets say swn_hz_pad . If
this seems acceptable, I will post a patch for this.
