  These  are  not the  X-events  but  pseudo  events that  I  generate
internally.

  I wouldn't stare too hard at this code yet - my next release will be
rather different internally.

  I have completed revised how widgets are written - the code to implement
a widget is somewhat longer but (I hope) much clearer.

  I'm adding a proper failure model - and I will document how to write a 
widget.

  You'll have to wait a bit for this (a few days I hope) ...
