A non-editable spinbutton should not be editable at all. If you need
a spinbutton with a read-only entry, you should just make the entry
readonly (though I don't know if gtkspinbutton has an api for that 
short of poking in the widget internals). I can imagine readonly
spinbuttons to make sense if they become readonly as part of changing
some other settings in a larger dialog.
