Thanks for your quick reply and your offer to help further, but I'm now
working on it and I currently don't need help. I'll come back to your offer
or ask further questions if needed.

WRT your suggestion using type(): I'm not keen on using the type() system
more than necessary.

I'm thinking of implementing one or more of these features:

- new behavior (w/o arrow box resizing) should be default (very, very
likely)
- add an option to use the old arrow resizing behavior (maybe)
- make the arrow box width's configurable by the user (less likely)

Basically I think the old behavior is broken and should be replaced
unconditionally (thanks for your patch) but I'm not sure if that's feasible
(someone may depend on the old behavior).

Regarding your arrow images: I believe I'm not going to uses the images
because the arrow drawing code will probably be changed short-term or
mid-term. IMHO the selected scheme (i.e. Fl::scheme()) should determine the
arrow (and other) drawing functions. Every exception (like using images in
the widget code) would be a problem in the transition to this future
development.

I'll let you know about the progress...
