I think the idea is that Gtk does not dictate policy; rather it should
provide enough "hooks" for a higher layer to customize. Maybe the Gtk
treeview should have all these options, which the GNOME libraries wrap to
create the "official" GNOME look for a treeview.

AFAIK *many* Microsoft apps re-implement variations of the standard widgets.
eg Office 2000 has its own code for pull-down menus (to incorporate the
"self re-arranging menu" mis-feature before it became a part of Windows =)
