 Could be done with scrolled_window_set_shadow_type() now

So, we have something like 7 widgets out of 80 that would do anything
m in response to the argument being set. While that's a fair number,
and it's annoying to have the shadow_type argument code duplicated, it
would worry me to add it when it would do nothing for most widgets.

(I know what the most common Glade and GLE FAQ would be if we did
that ... "I just set the shadow type on a GtkVBox and it didn't

And I certainly don't want to go in and make VBox actually draw a
shadow. That's what GtkFrame is there for.
