if you are right and he actually talks about a container that will layout
widgets, wrapped at the left or lower margin (i also have problems gathering
what exactly he's aiming at), then yes: the wrap boxes are actually available
in the gle module in GNOME CVS in the ./gle/ directory.
the required files are

gtkwrapbox.[hc]  (base class)
gtkhwrapbox.[hc] (horizontal wrapping box)
gtkvwrapbox.[hc] (vertical wrapping box)

the sources can easily be extracted as there are no gle specific dependancies
in these widgets, except for an extra perl script and a rule to
autogenerate gtkvwrapbox.[hc] from gtkhwrapbox.[hc] ;)
maybe some include lines will need to be fixed, but that should be about it.
these widgets will go into gtk+ 1.3 once we start focussing on the development
