Now that the Gtk+ tool bar can be positioned along all four frame edges,
it would be nice if we could do this by dragging the tool bar with the
mouse.  This is possible e.g. in OpenOffice.org, which also uses Gtk+

OpenOffice has hijacked the handle normally used for detaching.  So we can
have one or the other, but I think both would be difficult.

Well, in OpenOffice the tool bar is both draggable and
detachable... (but I have no idea how they do it).

Is it?  I can't detach it in my Openoffice.

In mine (specifically, oowriter), when I start to drag the tool bar, a
box with a thick border appears; as long as it stays outside the text
area, it snaps to whatever edge I stop pressing mouse-1 at, and the tool
bar then appears at that edge, attached to the main window (frame).  But
if I drag the box into the text area, the border becomes thin, and when
I release mouse-1 here, the tool bar appears detached from the main
window.  I have Openoffice 3.1.1 from openSUSE 11.2, which is "created
by Novell, Inc., base on Openoffice.org", so maybe this is an added

OpenOffice does the same as Mozilla/Firefox, keep an unrealized instance of the Gtk+ widget around just so they can use its paint routines to get the right look. They don't actually use the functionality of the widgets, that is implemented separately. This probably helps to implement the same behaviour on multiple platforms.
