Good suggestion, although making widgets insensitive does not make them

I would like to make a panel of widgets disappear when they are not needed
in my ui, but without causing the layout manager to mess up the surrounding

Other possible solutions:
Maybe I can use something like a tabbed panel (without showing the tabs)?

Overwrite the widget's paint methods, and use my own "visible" flag when I
want them to appear with a queue_draw().
