Using the graphic is a much better choice than a roundRect button, 
because the button uses an older non-antialiased corner.

If any of the C programmers here have a few minutes, we could enjoy all 
the benefits roundRect button with appearances as good as a roundRect 
graphic with what Monte describes as a fairly minor bit of work:

    This is possibly a good user contribution. It's just wrapping
    the drawroundrect call with `dc -> setquality(QUALITY_SMOOTH);
    ` & `dc -> setquality(QUALITY_DEFAULT);`
