Press ctrl, hold the mouse button, release ctrl but not the button... That's
quite a hidden feature. I do respect your choice, but that confirms what I said:
it's designed for a specific purpose, it needs some more options to become a
generic widget that can accommodate the various tastes mentioned on this thread.

Changing the background image isn't sufficient to rival with the phat knob
visual animation, which provide a rotary level meter, as found in many modern
software. Check out the underlying pixmap(s):
