Please forgive me for my GTK ignorance, I'm just starting to dig
into GTK while I'm writing a patch that allows people to disable
and re-enable coloring rules. It has been sort of a GTK-crash-course
for me (I got the GTK+2 stuff working and am now installing GTK+1 so 
that I can test if it all works under GTK+1 too without breaking
things).

Cheers,
