libsexy is some dude's cool widgets thrown into a library [1].

Just how many of those does libnotify need?  Can they live in libnotify
for now?

Let's not add yet another random dependency to the stack --- in three
years, we'll have Project Ridley Version Two to get rid of libsexy
anyway, because those widgets will have become unmaintained.

If the widgets get polished enough *AND* are generally useful *AND* get
documented, we can push them easily into GTK+.  If they are really
special-purpose, they deserve to be just where they are needed.

[1] Yes, they are very cool and all that.
