IMHO we should go another way with the implementation. I think we should
use on of the GtkCombo* widgets that gal provides and which are used by
gnumeric for the undo and redo selectors. So I'd recomment to move the
GtkCombo* stuff from gal to gtk. It would (my opinion) look better if
the dropdown-list is aligned with the button.
