The only way I can think of to do this is to create images of the  
icon states you want and use them in transparent, borderless buttons.  
The difficulty would be figuring out a way to have the button label  
show on top of the icon image instead of under or beside it. I  
suppose you could do some fancy work with snapshots of actual buttons  
that you modify on the fly... It's starting to sound messy at this
