#1 Shift control icons to pen-up

Vexed 2.5

From Mike McCollister (mikemccollister@yahoo.com)

1) Right now the buttons at the bottom of the screen
respond to the pen down, not like a real button that
responds to the pen up event. Could you possibly
change this?

Comments from Scott Ludwig:

It is subtle for most people. The idea with doing it on up is that you can
change your mind after you have done a pen down by dragging out of the
control and releasing. Usually the control is supposed to highlight on down
so that you get feedback that releasing will cause that control to fire.
Given that there is no feedback currently, I would leave it as it is since
as it is now you get feedback when the pen goes down.

Ideally in a future release the buttons would highlight on pen down giving
feedback, and then fire on pen up.

We'll need some way of highlighting the bitmaps when they're pressed.

    Reasigning for 2.5. It's definitely need to be solved
    (acting on penUpEvent does not really closes this issue).
