So you are saying we would need to add an event manager to LCL?

I guess in a round about way that is what I have been trying to convey
all along. I was trying to do it by explaining the problem involved but
maybe I should just say "STOP IT", work on GTK. We have been drawn down
in to discussions of WindProc, WinHandles, etc. etc. and it just doesn't
need to be talked about or done at this time. We certainly aren't at the
point to be talking the GTK people and telling them what they should be
adding the GTK library.

So I agree let's just keep working on GTK and get something done.
