GDK supports it. There is no GTK+ widget that does so
currently. I've thought that a neat idea for a widget
would be a BIN widget that put an input-only window
over its child. (GtkLexan ?)

It shouldn't be that hard to write.

If tables do what you want, then I think that is a simpler
solution than making boxes as complicated as tables. ;-)
