All I got there was pretty much a single "nice!"

Off-list I talked a bit with one developer who sad that GTK should have
some abstraction to switch between behaviours and that such widget
variations could be part of theming.

I think there was a bit of talk on gnome-usability when I brought up the
concept the first time, but nothing useful as I couldn't get the idea
across - which is why I made the demo and video. Posting those there led
to 2 useless replies (someone asking if OpenLook on Solaris didn't have
something like that a few years back) and
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=530413#c4

The feedback on digg was ... varied.
