I've been having some fun with gtk_Style...it looks like there's enough
support in there already to make things fairly configurable. Howevwer, it
still needs things done..for one thing check buttons and scroll bars and
things are drawn with rectangles rather than a style pointer to a
function. Also gtkrc doesn't understand anything except the default as far
as i can make out, and the widget sizes are too small to make pretty
pixmaps - how about borders of 4 rather than 2 for shadows, and 16 rather
than 11 for scrollbars? And a way for the user to change these defaults?
