That would probably make not a lot of sence, because the stuff you
draw *to* are still X windows, so as far as I know you would have to
change GTK+ to use OpenGL contexts instead.
However, again, as far as I know, GTK uses a lot ob child-windows so
you would probably need a lot of OpenGL contexts which doesn't work
that well.
