I took a little break from Vala and went back to do a refresh of the gradient editor in OxTerm, which will be used (eventually) to set gradient backgrounds. I personally think it's a lot nicer than what existed in Zterm. This is now fully capable of creating the css required to make the setting active, just waiting on the Vte port to gtk4 to regain some abilities.

Well, not just waiting actually. I got in touch with the devs and a maintainer put the code back in that used to enable a clear background for Vte. Problem is it's not working for me. I need to write a little test program in C to see if it is actually broken or if I'm messing up the Rust FFI. The bindings don't have the replaced function, si I rolled my own.

Gah, not looking forward to writing any C again...

At some point I'll go in and replace the tab labels so that instead of displaying the widget name they display the color of that particular gradient stop. Other than that, this is the finished interface, and about as simple as I can make it.
