What's a GtkDrawingArea good for?


this is really odd. Some time ago I spent about a week creating a custom widget (stuff gets drawn directly into the widgets's window using GDK primitives). All works quite well.

It's only now that I realized that I hadn't even used a GtkDrawingArea for the purpose. I must have forgotten. So my puzzlement is evident from the Subject line: if I can do all that stuff without using a dedicated GtkDrawingArea, what is it good for?
