Interesting idea, but I'd much rather have GtkEntry use GtkTextBuffer
and its formatting features somehow. That would also allow for inserting
images and such, just like in GtkTextView, and would add less
specialized API to GtkEntry and GtkSpinButton (which are supposed to be
simple interfaces). I don't think something like this belongs there.
