There is no direct support for "scrolled list" yet in xforms.
A quick way of getting this to work is just move the objects when
the scrollbar changes value. You need to keep track where the objects
are and clip when necessary so they don't overflow to other parts of
the form. Also, this setup does not conflict with using
XCopyArea to "move" the drawings.
