oops. thats a good point.
I think that my question may need an addition to gtk+ to make it possible
though, which is why perhaps it is still applicable to this list.

ah yes. I discovered that a little bit after I sent the email.

However, my ideal goal is to make the minimum of adjustments to existing
code, which means keeping to the gtk type of level of things.

eg: do a gtk_signal_connect() to register a callback for root window
events, and then forget about that stuff, rather than have to deal with
gdk_XXX stuff.

If there is no official method to get and use root-window events through
gtk mechanisms... maybe there should be?

Presumably, all that this would involve, would be creating an official
gtk object/wrapper for the root window. As far as I've found, there
currently isnt such an object.

How does that sound?
Is this the wrong arena for that suggestion?
