When we change the images for the notification bar , etc , will we have to change the spacing between the images manually ? Also can we do this to any app we want to install , i.e change the images in the app ?

In the 2.3 rom , the spacing between the status icons like battery and signal is very little , replacing those images with larger ones will make it overlap right ? So should we increase this spacing manually ?
