There is one type of redraw that won't get coelesced - and
that is an expose from the X server. If I remove a WINDOW widget,
or move it, the X server will generate expose events for
the newly exposed areas.
If I map a !NO_WINDOW widget, I don't have to queue a draw
on it, because the server will expose the new window,
(And also, we shouldn't be relying too much on the draw
combining code. Although it does a pretty good job, it
isn't blazingly fast.)

Hmmm, there seems to be a problem - since we queue_clear() there,
we are already saying "redraw the current allocation of
the widget", but in size_allocate we do:
if (GTK_WIDGET_NO_WINDOW (widget))
if (widget->allocation.x != real_allocation.x ||
widget->allocation.y != real_allocation.y ||
widget->allocation.width != real_allocation.width ||
widget->allocation.height != real_allocation.height)
needs_draw = TRUE;
Which also redraws the old allocation of the widget.
This looks very much like it needs to be a queue_draw()
since otherwise we'll redraw the old allocation of the
widget twice, and the new allocation (if it moved)
