Ooo, neat, never thought of that.

Tiny point: you can do it with gtkrc files with more than 4 colours by
changing the name, rather than the state. Eg.:

	style "colour1_style" {
	widget "*colour1_widget" style "colour1_style"
	style "colour2_style" {
	widget "*colour2_widget" style "colour2_style"

	gtk_widget_set_name( my_widget, "colour1_widget" );
	gtk_widget_set_name( my_widget, "colour2_widget" );

I guess this'll be a little slower than setting the state (though I've
not timed it), but it's fast enough for most things.
