There's always a trade-off between speed and cost. In this case, they are
caching the entire shadow in an Image. It's fine to do this for a few
figures, but it doesn't scale very well. It should be straightforward to
convert the image construction in this example to an SWT image. With clever
stretching you can do rectangular drop shadows using very small cached
images. You could also draw gradients with varying alpha values or a series
of overlapping, transparent paths.
In GEF 3.3, you can set borders which also paint a background onto any
existing figure (e.g. Label). So, you could implement this shadow effect in
a border rather than as its own "wrapper" figure.
