Hi Robert,

So, I don't think that Gtk is really great for the kind of effects you 
are looking for. I'm sure it can be done, but I doubt it can be done 
easily. There are lots of fun ways to make cool GUIs though. You might 
want to look at GooCanvas, PyGame, or a Webkit Window.

In terms of structuring your code ... if you use Quickly to create your 
project, you'll get a decent default structure that will be packagable 
and deployable onto Ubuntu desktops.

Cheers, Rick
