As far as containers go, I am puzzling over how one does a background 
spanning a collection of containers. For example in my Delphi app I have 
an "about" window which contains a TImage component on top of which I 
place the needed labels and a button. The TImage provides a background 
graphic for the window. How does one do this with GTK# ?

Thanks for the tip.  I'm running Gentoo and installed by portage. It 
appears this only gets you the binaries, so had to get sources separately.
I was googling around for some intermediate code, specific to Stetic 
use, but there is practically nothing beyond some console output "hello 
world" examples and simple runtime add widget code. Not of much help to 
a Stetic user.
