I remember a proprietary version of Emacs (not derived from GNU Emacs)
having the ability to display arbitrary X Toolkit (such as Motif or
Athena widgets) widgets inside frames, along with providing protocol
bindings to X-Windows.

Would it make sense to extend the existing xwidget feature to support
this?  Now that I think of it, I think such a feature would greatly
benefit GNU Emacs.
