You could set the value through script and validate() afterwards, you 
can do that automatically.

But that raises an interesting point: If an invalid value is sat through 
script, should the value be displayed or ignored? With some widgets, 
like a slider, there is no way to display invalid values, so it would 
have to be ignored (and the value reset).

Maybe this should be implementation dependent, since the range of 
invalid values which is displayable depends on the widget.
