semantically speaking, what aspects of a widget's "state" in the
broadest possible sense are required to be mutually exclusive?

from my perspective (partially as reporter of, this just seems to
be a hangover of a misconception that was made early in GTK's design.
its hard for me to see anything other than


that are required to be mutually exclusive. its only "paired states"
that require this kind of thing, and if we have 2 of them already,
thats probably just about enough. am i missing something?
