[Gtk-sharp-list] Layor or Fixed (please!)

I'm going to try to build a weekview calendar widget, something like you
seen in evolution/outlook - like

I've found example of how to do this with WinForms, but nothing like it
seems to exist for Gtk#.

But I'm stumped by what I read.

Gtk.Fixed's documentation contains a lengthy enumeration of reasons NOT
to use Gtk.Layout.  But I've found several posts saying that Gtk.Layout
is old and one SHOULD use Gtk.Fixed.

So if one needs complicated widget layout what is the
official/recommended way to go about it?  

I don't see how it would be possible to do this via normal Gtk packing;
I've played around with using a Table, etc... but it end up not being
flexible enough;  how to layout to overlapping events, etc...
