Note that disabled (grayed out) is not the same as
non-editable. Non-editable means the text part of the spinbutton is
set to be non-editable. A normal text box can be set to be
non-editable when it is used as a display. I agree with Owen that it
doesn't make sense to make a spinbutton non-editable.
