I think the similar question was how to get an X window id.

The answer is both cases would be that there isn't a way, but I don't
see how it could hurt. I've added `get-handle' to window<%> in the CVS
sources for 299.105.

The result of `get-handle' is an exact integer, which can be cast to a
HWND (Windows), WindowRef or ControlRef (Mac OS X), or Widget* (X).
