Trapping all mouse events will not make the app to slow? if not, this
sounds like a terrific idea! :-)

Yes! yesterday I was chatting with one gnome developer at gnome IRC, and
he helped me about thinking how to move canvas underneath mouse pointer,
but later I was thinking that that could be a bad idea because the user
could loose if the starchart moves too much. Your idea is great, the
only thing that I don't know is if trapping every single mouse movement
event will make my app to cpu-intensive.
