yes, if you have beast around, fire it up and click on the
"Load" button. you'll get a dialog with a treeview listing
sample lib directories (extracted from $BEAST_SAMPLE_PATH),
and once you selected one, the dialog switches pages to the
file selector directed at the directory you selected.

apart from that specific example, beast introduces its own
GtkWindow derived toplevel which does things like register
with a global window list to maintain per-project windows,
syncronizs it's title to the name of a BseObject, etc...
so whatever widget i use, i need to be able to put it into
my own window.
