I think you're suggesting that in the picture:

| 00011112223333333333|
| 00011112223333333333|
| 00011112224444444444|
| 55511112226667888888|
| 55511112226667888888|
| 55511112226667888888|
| 55511112226667888888|
| 99999999999999999999|

each of the numerical areas is no longer a Widget but a Window (with no
decoration) which contains a Container which contains a single Widget. Is
that right?

The documentation is sparse on the issue of focus. Suppose that we have all
these Windows that contain Widgets, is it then possible programmatically to
switch the input focus amongst them without the user having to touch a mouse?
