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.
The specific parts that we borrowed are:
This is still on the development tree, so we have plenty of time to
work out a better way of doing this.
