Right: "set-gadget" as in "a gadget that contains a set (e.g. an
item-list)".  (This name threw me for a while, too.)

So a related question: When I use an item-list in, say, a (MOTIFish)
list-pane, do I have any control over the appearance of *individual* items?

I can do it for the *entire* pane, but I would like to control, for
example, the text-style or ink in which that *single* item is drawn.  (I
can handle enabled/disabled individual items by handling that in the
value-changed callback.)

There's nothing on this in the documentation and I don't want to risk
blowing out MOTIF by experimenting at this level.
