To be fair, it's high time people started writing their layout

I tried that (a looong time ago, on GTK 2.4) and eventually all I did was extending GtkTable and rewriting gtk_widget_size_allocate.

At the time there was no tutorial, no decent documentation on how to write a layout manager, no examples aside the (quite complicated) source of GtkTable and the likes. In the end I still don't know if I did everything "in the right way", but it works, so I guess it's fine (at least for our purposes).

Is the situation still the same? I can see why most people prefer to use the standard layout containers rather than implementing their own...
