	Usually you'd do that by passing a reference to the parent
object as a 
	constructor argument to the child object, and then have the
child object 
	ask the parent object for references to other objects. Something

	class ChildA;
	class ChildB;

	class Parent
	     ChildA* child_a;
	     ChildB* child_b;

	     Parent() {
	         child_a = new ChildA(*this);
	         child_b = new ChildB(*this);
	     ChildB& getB() {
	         return *child_b;
	class ChildA
	     ChildA(Parent& parent) {
	         ChildB& child_b = parent.getB();  // Get reference to

That sounds like a simple solution I'll hack in for now.  Thanks
Christer!  What I was hoping for was a way to not need to rely on having
the parent class having accessors to each class pointer.  Eventually,
everything will be declared dynamically as needed, so I was hoping there
might be something I could use in Gtk (like Gtk::manage) that kept track
of the objects and their hierarchy.
