Hi Cédric

Well, I must admit that it is grown already a bit, and still is work in

Things have changed and it is no longer a single header. I've
implemented widgets to be transparent, usage of adjustments and
currently working on proper scaling support modes.

My goal is to implement it as simple as possible, so, that just a
setting is required to decide how a widget is presented on screen, but
allow as well to fine tune anything more deep.

However, I've setup a online Documentation for libxputty here:
