As a historical note, originally, gtk_pixmap_new() took five
GdkPixmap arguments, one for each state. 

However, when the mask was added, this was changed, presumably

 a) When the background changes to match the state, the
    need to use separate pixmaps is less. 
 b) Specifying 5 pixmaps and 5 masks would be extremely
    clunky. (5 pixmaps was already extremely clunky)

As Tim has pointed out, you can change the pixmaps yourself
in response to "state_changed" currently.
