Just had a look again and what is confusing is gtk_main. gtk_main
doesn't only enter the runloop but initializes stuff as well. So what
(IMHO) would be needed are functions like this:

  FD_SET descriptors = gtk_runloop_descriptors();
  // own runloop
    if (descriptors were busy)

Right ? The way it currently is I have to copy most of gtk_main's code,
right ?
