Ooh, I like the look of that a lot.

It does seem like it would be a little harder to learn that typing '/'
gives that magic shaped tag, but maybe tag-completion does that for us
by magic.  ie, in a context where "foo/" makes sense, typing
"foo<tab>" will give you the slash-shaped foo.

Now, how to code that in GTK... (sigh)  Maybe splitting the widget
into body and 'cap' will make dealing with non-rectangular widgets
less painful.
