[pygtk] delete-event with multiple windows from different classes???

I can't think of a really easy to do it--there's a gtk.WindowGroup
object that might be better, but...

As long as you keep a container of "handles" to these windows, just make
the encompassing Window's call them iteratively:

windowlist = (window1(), window2(), window3())

foo.connect("delete-event", self.DeleteAllWindows)

def DeleteAllWindows(self, widget):
	for w in windowlist:

Am I misunderstanding what you're asking? :)
