Well there's no point doing it, since we can't add new features to
gnome-libs 1.0. If you want to do it locally, look at the many
examples already in gnome-preferences.[ch].

I've thought about it more and I think the "standard" way to have
user-configurable elements like this is to make them Bonobo components
instead of plain widgets. Then the programmer asks for the component
by name and gets whichever one users have chosen.
