	Where is intended for new implementations of stock widgets and dialogs
to be plugged in? A gtk+ module? Or a "platform library" which apps must
link to in order to use these new implementations?

	Whichever it is, I'm wondering about things like VinoUrl - i.e. an
application derived widget. Should it be expected that a plugged-in
re-implementation of GtkLabel would also be used by VinoUrl? Probably
not, now that I think of it.
