I'm trying for something vastly different, but I never thought of using
buttons.  There *may* be a way to do this.

To use buttons, though, I'd need to figure out:

1) How to turn OFF the borders of the button -- that is, I want no

2) How to drag and drop the entire button around the window.

Since I don't foresee any of these things happening, I thought a
DrawingArea would be best, since I have (nearly) complete control over
what goes on inside of it.  Alternatively, I suppose I could use
EventBoxes which contains labels and pixmaps, right?  Like so (WARNING:
horribly malformed Booch class diagram follows!):

	[IconView] <>----> [GtkWindow]
	|   |	<>
	|   |	+--------> [GtkMenu]
	|   V
	|   [IconIterator]
	<> <>---> [GtkEventBox] --------+
	|			   	|
	+-------> [GtkLabel]    <-------+
	|				|
	`-------> [GtkPixMap]	<-------+

(ASCII makes horrible Booch diagrams, not that I'm that good at using them
anyway; please forgive me if mangle it badly!)
