My idea was, if a user creates several plot windows during an ad-hoc
session, then he can overplot from command line to any one of them by
just bringing it to the foreground. I am beginning to think that a
common block is appropriate here, because I see no other way to link an
existing widget with command-line executed code.

I have not had problems with focus events. I haven't used them
everywhere (and, in fact, with *keyboard*), but in this case, when all I
have is a base widget and a draw widget, it seems to me that the only
time I get events returned is when I put the base in the foreground or
background (by clicking a mouse button). Am I missing something?
