Scroll bar widgets work different from Emacs' scroll bars.  One
registers a callback function with the widget that is invoked when
actions happen on the scroll bar, for instance when the scroll bar
handle is dragged, when a scroll bar arrow is clicked etc.  The widget
does the translation of user actions to scroll bar actions, depending
on its capabilities and specified user translations (I mean the normal
X way of customizing X widgets).  The scroll bar actions received by
the callback function are converted to certain "widget events" that
are handled in Lisp.
