Well, I meant descendant I think, ie. a windowed control.

Rubberband can be drawn on the screen itself. It's temporary, after all. 
Is this possible in gtk too?

Selection marks aren't the grabber handles?

Guide/snap lines are the grid, the dots? These are not inter-control, 
are they? Only things that require inter-control calculations should be 
redone. Or is this too simply thought?

We can try to implement things one by one, first the invisible 
components, then the grabber handles, etc...Then dependencies will show 
gradually. Or do you want a complete rewrite from scratch?
