  - interactive overlay: buttons over entry get prelights and
    instead of the entry stealing them

Hmm, the demo however sets the overlay as passthrough?

There's two overlay. One is passthrough, the other isn't: the
"Numbers" are
supposed to be passthrough, while the entry is supposed to get

Not what I see in code :). AFAICS both the entry and the label are
children of a vbox, which is the only, pass-through overlay. The
inspector seems to confirm this hierarchy.

And this means gtk3 is broken :/, as it's essentially the same thing

The test was added especially to test the case of a generally
transparent/shaped overlay that had some non-transparent child widget.

It works, because the entry has a GdkWindow that is not pass through.
From the gdk_window_set_pass_through docs:

 Note that a window with @pass_through %TRUE can still have a subwindow
 without pass through, so you can get events on a subset of a window.
 And in that cases you would get the in-between related events such as
 the pointer enter/leave events on its way to the destination window.

In general, pass-through is related to a particular window, not the
entire sub-hierarchy. This matches the css pointer-events: none
behaviour, and anything else would be far less useful.

Hmm, I see, missed those bits. Which doesn't match too well to a
non-GdkWindow/GdkEventMask based world... how do we express this
selective pass-through across complex portions of a widget hierarchy?
The best I can think of is making GtkOverlay implement ::pick, make it
peek the deepmost widget of the picking operation, and check whether
any widgets on the way up to the overlay child have event controllers
attached, that seems the closest to non-passthrough child windows.
