Can panel separator expand?

I like to put the clock in the center of my panel, is there a way to expand the separators on each side of the clock?

You don’t need to expand “separators” in Mate panel, like the way you have to do with, say, lxde or xfce. You simply move the clock to the centre of the panel and the space between the clock and other items will correctly reflect the distance between the clock and the other items.

I filed a feature request about this, though I didn’t approach it with expandable spaces:

There’s been no movement, I guess we’ll have to wait for the next MATE development cycle and hope it gets added onto the roadmap.

Thanks for the request
