GnomePropertyBox was fine for the times.  However times are changing.
Nowdays just about everyone agrees that the best way to do properties is with
immediate effect, that is things get applied immediately.  This is what's
done in PonG and that's something that doesn't make absolutely any sense in

There is a planned feature in pong to support the "OK/Apply" types of boxes,
but it's not there yet as I don't see such a great need for it.
