prelight, again

Are there are any plans to allow disabling of prelight, globally, in
any future version of GTK? 

Prelighting conflicts absolutely with the use of color to distinguish
widget state. For a simple demonstration, consider this style:
       style "foo" {
           fg[NORMAL] = { 1.0, 0.0, 0.0 }
	   fg[ACTIVE] = { 0.0, 0.0, 1.0 }

Consider what color the widget should appear in PRELIGHT. Should it be
red? Should it be blue? Some other color?

Thanks. We have had quite a lot of feedback (relatively speaking)
about this issue in ardour, where we make extensive use of style files
to define colors that distinguish widget (and ultimately "model" (as
in MVC)) states. People find it very distracting and annoying that
prelight always adopts *one* specific color, independent of the state
of the widget.
