Think it should be as compatible as possible, but this does'nt mean you
can't implement additional features.

You can add those properties but should keep in mind that 

  - we want to keep the lcl independent from any specific widget-set
    (so be careful adding GTK-specific stuff)
  - such things should be well documented (specially if they depend on
    a specific widget-set)
  - we should have a focus on getting things up'n running
    (My suggestion: Don't add properties that are hard to implement)
