Er, wasn't there some patch for drawing the tab using only PS code ? why
is it not yet included ?

By the way... If we want themes, one of the thing that would be needed is
some colornames for helping with contrast problems (ie, you could draw some
text in light gray now on a window, it will be fine -- but if the theme change
the window's background color to the same light gray ... you got a problem). I
think the best idea then would be to use some specific colornames for text drawn
over background ?
