I might add that this right here is the reason I don't think I can just
use a backing pixmap as suggested in the GTK+ Tutorial. The display of an
image, as I understand it, draws directly to the Preview widget, not to a
GDK Drawable. What's more, my understanding is that this is a much more
efficient way of displaying an image than trying to draw to a pixmap.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
