See RenderThemeGtk.cpp and ScrollbarThemeGtk.cpp. You will quickly see
why repurposing that code is not going to be practical... these are not
GTK+ widgets in any real sense of those words, they are drawn manually
using the GTK+ foreign drawing API. GTK+ does not make this easy.
You're looking at a major engineering project touching the internals of
WebCore if you want to allow real GTK+ widgets into the DOM.
