	The only way to get at the dock etc. used by a BonoboWindow (eg.) ius
via the XML API - that is assuming you want to do supported things; if
not you can go poking at the widget hierarchy, assume types all over the
shop and get merrily screwed when we switch to eggfoobaa in gnome-2.8 or
whatever :-)

	Of course - you can instantiate a FooDock anyway, but it's not a
pleasant widget to be using in todays world I think.
