Ok, that works nicely. My problem now is that the SendKeyEvent sends to 
the currently focussed window. I'm trying to deal with this with 
XSetInputFocus, but code something like this:

SPI_generateKeyboardEvent (XStringToKeysym(label.c_str()),"",SPI_KEY_SYM);

where focuswindow is the window that I want events to go to doesn't seem 
to work. I'd expect testwindow to be set to the same value as 
focuswindow - instead, it gets sent to whichever window is currently 
focussed in the window manager (Metacity in this case). As a result, my 
keypress ends up in the wrong window. Am I doing something obviously 
wrong here?
