I really have to agree with Benno here -- for just two pixmaps
you can have very nice effects that are space/memory efficient,
and given to-the-pixel resolution, which really *is* useful to some.
I have these widgets in gdam (skin/gtkpixscrollbar.[hc])
and actually i already have skin/gdamdial.[ch] similar to your proposal.
(The pix-splitbar, which is fills half its area with one pixmap,
and half with the other, with the split boundary the mark, eg.
indicates 70%. sorry that's kind of unclear...)
They already have libglade ``custom_widget'' wrappers -- but i have
no idea how to make Gtk-- wrappers.
