I'd like to do that, I'd also like for them to be different. However, this
doesn't work. I thought of it and tried it, to no avail.
What I'm doing exactly is putting a buntch of dialog items within another dialog
item witch it also a view. Sometimes I'd like the view and the window to be
different colors. BTW, set-color also fails to work with the view.
