It's too bad one has to resort to using other programs for pixel
perfect borders (as if there ever was such a thing). That means it's
impossible to write a Script-Fu for it (unless you are *really*
ambitious) and also that you can't use GIMP's gradients to fill the
border or the background of the box.
A sad day this is.
