Removing the large resize grip / button in GNOME Terminal

I like to have my GNOME Terminal scrollbar on the left (it reminds me of xterm then).  But in GNOME 3 there's a fugly triangular grip/button that sits in the bottom right obscuring text!

There's no option to remove it, but thanks to the wonders of CSS (& GTK's decision to use it for render control!) you can create ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css :

* {
 -GtkWindow-resize-grip-height: 0;
 -GtkWindow-resize-grip-width: 0;
 }

I've actually set my sizes to 8, which is about right for my needs.
