Changing the font size and padding works. Eg.

  padding.width: 0
  window.active.label.text.font: Bitstream Vera Sans:pixelsize=0

The menu bar doesn't disappear but it gets rather small (two pixels
wide). I guess what you're after is to make all windows "undecorated"
but I'm not sure how to do that except from the window menu.
