	Impossible, the code was removed in favour of a pure Gdk based
approach; quite what the rational was behind this I don't know - I
believe gtk+ is mooted as providing a canvas like model now. Sadly it
seems to do this by endless X server roundtrips.

	Indeed; by accurate measuring (with sticky tape) I see that rendering 8
icons takes ~130ms:

[pid  7793] 1031079385.407424 access("drawpixbuf start", F_OK) = -1
ENOENT (No such file or directory)
[pid  7793] 1031079385.539125 access("draw canvas item end", F_OK) = -1
ENOENT (No such file or directory)

	These 8 happening to be in a row un-interrupted by other threads; which
seems a little excessive to me - only a few of these had emblems.
