Thanks Gregory, looks like a good meeting.

There's a section at the end that interested me and I can't work out
how it started (is something missing).

RT: create small window, set alpha channel to background (zero) if
draw to it, selection indicated;
PB: one alpha channel then?
JS: what about multiple on-screen panels?
RT: may be unforseen problems

I've just done that in Jambu, drawing SVG over Firefox's UI (with fall
back to a flashing X-ored rect if no alpha or compositing WM). One
possible problem is that the overlay window gets all mouse clicks (as
a temp hack I need to pass synthetic mouse clicks through to Firefox).
Another issue is tracking movement/resizing of the underlying window
and I've not addressed that.

Does anyone know a way to get X in GTK to pass mouse events through to
the window behind?

That is a big user base, especially in education.
