Similarly, it would be good to provide a Gtk "theme" that gives Xaw-like behavior (or some other: there used to be a variety of useful behaviors in various scrollbars, such as the one used in the Smalltalk machine, ...).
But I doubt it can currently be done with just a theme.

Just having the more sensible mouse-click bindings (mouse-1 = forward
by N% anywhere in the scrollbar, mouse-2 = opposite) would be a
tremendous improvement.  Does GTK filter-out all the useful
information before handing scroll clicks to Emacs?

Yes, the behaviour on different buttons is hard coded, no configuration possible. A possible approach is to intercept mouse events and handle them in Emacs rather than passing them to the scroll bar. This may be desirable for other reasons also (overscrolling).
