Re: subwindow-less Gtk+ and offscreen windows

I don't think that will work, since the user of the gl widget may want
to change the viewport as well, and the coordinates in glViewport are
always absolute, not relative to the current one.

But anyway, would it really be a problem to just have an X window,
only for widgets that really need it, and let normal GTK widgets,
like text fields and event boxes do their own clipping?

I do agree with Alexander that it would make things a lot more
flexible. I only wouldn't know if it's possible without braking
