normally it would be the display manager, but i never heard of a good
library or a gnome library who does it an using the X code directly is
also no good especially because canoncial want to replace X.
so in the near future a decend wrapper would be good anyway.
and as in other systems windows manager functionns and gui functions
aren't seperated  (see win32 for example) other gui toolkits like
wxWidgets implement a wrapper (wich atm does'nt work with the gtk
backend with linux which is a great downside for linux, gnome and gtk)
as you as coder don't have a function that will work regardless of what
to expect if GTK is present....
so i would vote for a wrapper in GTK.
