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

use, scope, and constraints, before committing to API stability.
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...
