It will be -- we're still crawling towards where we want to be, but once
the basic infrastructure is laid out we will be adding these bits

We have this implemented as part of Kiwi and a bit of Stoqlib, which
were GTK+1.2-based. Part of the work now is to move these bits to
GTK+2.x and make them annoy Lorenzo less (there is a world of evil in
Kiwi, and not all of it is really necessary in the 2.x realm).

Take care,
