Better layout for xfwm4 tweaks compositing page

GtkBuilder UI form file

This is proposal for better layout for xfce-settings / wmextra / Compositing page, where is option to turn on compositing with shadows/transparency settings.

This proposal is from this thread (I needed some feedback before proposal):
Where it is already liked.

Form in this proposal has dublicated vblank-mode option, so that you could try it in glade preview, by leaving only one line visible.
Though I'm asked to make dropdown below main checkbox, I'm inspired by some elements from elementary-os style, so left both variants for your choice.

Button box variant uses just GtkBox, as I don't see any advantages from GtkButtonBox, besides predefined grouping styles and heh, slightly bolder buttons.

Final variant, with some more indentation.

I completely forgot (did not notice) fifth transparency slider, for popups.

But when I try to add another attachment, I get this (black on red):

> The file you are trying to attach is empty, does not exist, or you don't have permission to read it.

That should be ebough, no even code update necessary, although vblank mode combobox is noop for now.
