I don't have any bright ideas off the top of my head, but Windows fills
the checkbox with a stipple pattern, or it used to anyway.  (Then again,
Windows does something different for radio buttons-- just leaves all the
buttons in the group unset, rather than stippling the union of the set
buttons-- so maybe M$ couldn't really make up their minds either).

Remember that there also needs to be a consistent visual treatment for
toolbar/toggle buttons that represent the state of a multiple selection,
e.g. the bold/italic/underline buttons on a text editor's toolbar... is
this included in the bug report?
