I think Alexandre can give you the best answer. Yes, the problem is 
mostly because of lack of child X windows. The main thing we'd have to 
add to XEmbed spec is clipping but probably there will be more problems. 
And I have no idea if freedesktop guys will accept what we need as 
clipping in XEmbed spec is useless for most apps (probably everyone 
except Wine).
