Which is utterly wrong.

1) you can't deal with clients malfunctioning

2) now every toolkit would not only look differently but also behave
differently, possibly to the point that when running applications
using multiple different toolkits your desktop breaks due to WM

3) this is not really toolkit specific and should not have to be
reimplemented in every toolkit
