   I think it would have been wise to discuss this step with the GIMP
   developers beforehand. I haven't looked at your code so I don't
   know which parts you "cribbed" but it seems like a bad idea to have
   the same code in two places. Before you rip code out of a library
   you should at least contact the authors. Perhaps there's a way we
   can avoid maintainence nightmare and make these widgets available
   to other projects instead of forcing more people to copy the code.

Good point.

The specific parts that we borrowed are:

gimp_table_attach_aligned
gimp_scale_entry
gimp_option_menu
gimp_dialog

This is still on the development tree, so we have plenty of time to
work out a better way of doing this.
