This, then, is most definately NOT the widget I need to use.  I have no

What I'm looking to implement is a file selector, a la Windows, AmigaOS,
MacOS, etc. with all the file icons inside it.  Icons can be any arbitrary
rectangle (that is, they're NOT fixed to just 32x32 or 64x64).  etc, and
could have alternate "selected" and "non-selected" images.  They must also
be drag/n/droppable within the window and with other windows of the same
