Cool, cc'ing gtk-devel-list on the response so that the appropriate
set of people see this. (Usually we are trying to chase things *off*

It also wouldn't hurt to open a bugzilla bug (if there isn't one
open already) and point to your website from it. That's the way
we typically like to track future additions to GTK+.

The way I think I'd handle activation for a drawer is to always 
make active window manager window the main toplevel then add
some hooks to GtkWindow to allow another toplevel to logically
be "part" of the GtkWindow for the purposes of focus and
