Answer: Xt does not support reparenting of widgets within the widget
hierarchy.  This would complicate the hierarchical resource model.  You can
destroy the old hierarchy and create a new one.  On most systems, this is
pretty fast for reasonably sized widget hierarchies.

Note, however, that X11R6.3 provides an "application group" extension that
allows one X client to act as the root of another X client's window hierarchy.
See the X11R6.3 documentation for more details.
