code is in the VM repository under 'HostWindowPlugin'. Aside from  
some simple testing code there isn't any image code to speak of;  
someone needs to write it. John wrote some code to treat a Project as  
a host window but I really don't like that approach very much. In my  
opinion we really want the ability to have each window as a window.  
If some suitable high-level morph (existing or new) can be made a  
suitable proxy for the host window then Ffenestri should have enough  
API to allow us to make fully host decorated main windows,  
undecorated host windows to use as pop-up menus and dialogues and  
pretty much anything else.

Now that we have access to Cairo drawing libraries and all the font  
stuff it really ought to be possible to implement a Squeak UI that  
hardly ever needs to fall back to simple bitblt. The potential for  
performance enhancement is enormous.
