A message providing notification of a single property is a subset of the 
one I'd suggested:

getProp and setProp for built-in properties

It may be simpler to implement a special case for just the text 
property, but there are a good many other properties I wouldn't mind 
being able to overload if we could.

Also, I just submitted a request to address the core issue here, saving 
the time needed to create a custom scrollbar from scratch by allowing us 
to set the colors and lookAndFeel of scrollbars and other controls:

Here's an example of the sort of thing we can do today using emulated 

It would be nice to be able to do that sort of thing on specific 
controls only.
