You can have a container that takes focus itself and also allows its
children to be focused. I'm trying to think of a simple example in GTK
but I'm not coming up with one... maybe GtkPaned does this? 
I guess GtkTextView does also in principle, but I think it's broken.

There's a "focus" method on GtkWidget you have to override to make
this happen.
