    I already have X11 installed and FromDrawable fails anyway. Maybe there
are some environment avariables to configure?
    As far as System.Drawing on OS X is concerned I believe I could get away
with these 70 % percent because our app, Warehouse Open, uses only the most
basic operations: drawing of text and lines. So the most important thing for
me is to somehow get that handle from FromDrawable.
