I believe that the way to do this is to make a gdk window
corresponding to the other application's main window, using
gdk_window_foreign_new(). You can then call gdk_window_add_filter() on
that window to register a filter function which will see all events,
and can allow processing as normal, or discard the events, as
required. (The code which implements this is in gdkevents.c)
