Re: MDI, is it possible???

Why do you want to control the positions of the windows. If they are
root windows I would leave it to the window manager, who should be quite
clever about the positioning. It you want to nest the "windows" then use
any positioning scheme that Gtk offers you. 

Maybe I am getting your notion of MDI wrong. When I think of MDI, I
think of something like Gimp, a few root windows or gedit, a few
documents tabbed (same with firefox). 

I am currently not seeing your point. 

I would actually more worry about the windows and application lifetime,
ie. exiting the application when really no window is open anymore or
running forever or attaching new windows to a running application after
invocation of a new one.
