I can talk with the GTK developers about this.  And also with the
LessTif developers.  Should I do that?

Feel free to try, but I don't have much hope:
- The LessTif people are probably bound by compatibility.
- The Gtk people are usually bound by dogmatism.

Didn't Miles in the context of "David would welcome Athena semantics
even with fancy-looking scrollbars" mention that it would be possible
to process the scrollbar events without even passing them into the
scrollbar widgets in the first place?

Looks like another reason here for thinking about that approach.

It may have been me that said that. I have tried that approach but there is some difficulties, i.e. not all parameters of the GTK scrollbar are available, most notably thumb pixel size. But I've tried to get overscrolling better with this approach, Athena sematics may be easier to do.
