Mouse position with key event (fwd)

 Sorry, I cc'd this to gtk-list-devel@ instead of gtk-devel-list   So I'm
forwarding this manually.

 Best regards,

 Why can't we add these fields to GdkEventKey in gtk-2.0? Why these fields
were not there in the gtk-1.x?

 Speaking about GdkEventKey, I proposed (in August on gtk-devel-list) addition
of 2 more fields to it to aid i18n of it, so now it can be right time to think
about extending GdkEventKey.
