[ale] running apps in the root window



Since the root window is simply another X window, is there a way to cause an
app to run within it?  I'm interested in getting a terminal to run under it
so that I can tail -f /var/log/messages and always have the output displayed
there.  Am I totally off base here or is it possible?

Thanks,

John
