Using a custom widget (or drawing area) means we probably have to
write some custom accessibility code. I would think it's worth it here
though, as there are just a whole lot of buttons possible, doesn't
seem scalable to use buttons.

My understanding is that ATK has an interface such as a "table" and
you have to implement it for the widget, or something.
