... actually, you'll notice most (native) apps in this domain *do* use
very basic renderings for their widgets, even though they are
implemented with the native toolkits, because that is what makes sense
on a touch screen and is best for usability.


Call me crazy, but I'll take clarity and usability over blind emulation
and stupid little pixmaps of physical buttons any day.
