Where can I find some real world examples of how this class and these
tags are used? Are they basically vector shapes that can have their
Z-Order changed (i.e. they are layered), or is there something else
I'm missing here?

I'll see if we can do something about getting this added into wx. (If
someone hasn't already coded up a solution.) It certainly seems like
there's some agreement that this is the core functionality that
TkInter has that keeps some people from using wx. ;-)
