I am not very familiar with GTK themes, but you may be able to modify the
GTK theme Textadept uses in order to change scrollbar color. Textadept's
GTK theme is `share/themes/MS-Windows/gtk-2.0/gtkrc`. I'm sorry that I'm
not able to provide any more information. Hopefully other internet
resources will be of help. Note that any changes will not be "on the fly",
but will need you to restart Textadept before they take effect.
