Use consistent horizontal item spacing in icon view

Created attachment 6420 Thunar's display for two different folders: one with maximum width items (top) and the other with dynamically resized widths (bottom)
Currently Thunar uses varying item spacing in icon view. If a view contains only items with short names, those items will be much closer together than in other views which also contain elements with long names. This is because of the dynamic column width of the grid in which the items are displayed. Please have a look at the attached screenshot for better illustration.
The varying horizontal spacing between items can be annoying when quickly navigating between multiple directories.
Many file managers use a consistent item spacing regardless of view content. I think Thunar should do the same, at least in horizontal direction.
