clicking on windows

We need to go to a lower level than layouts for esthetic reasons
and so need to do the following in clim.  What is the best way of doing it?

We want a background window that fills the entire screen.  We want several
windows to overlap that background window.  We never want the background
window to cover the windows on top of it.  For example, if the user clicks
on the background window we do not want it to come to the top.

We do not want to use layouts.  Our windows do not fully cover the
background window (which has a bitmap in it).

We looked at open-window-stream to create the windows but couldn't figure
out how to prevent a background window created from it from popping up when
clicked on.On the MAC (and other window systems) there is a distinction
between a click that selects a window and a click that selects within a
selected window.  I am not sure that CLIM deals with the former, does it?

I realize we are trying to use CLIM in a very low level way but the high
level stuff gets in our way and CLIM is what CLOE on the PC has built in.  

Thanks for any help.
