Will glade ever feature free form widget (control) placement. (I dont care

It already does support it. Use either the GtkFixed container or the
GtkLayout container (if you need scrolling).

But it is generally not a good idea to use them, since if you translate
your interface to another language the positions may be messed up (text
in other languages is usually longer than in English).
