Thanks for a hint, it made me find a similar interaction layer in
ParaView source code. As far as I understand:
  * PVRenderView is a control that encapsulates SMRenderModuleProxy and
    its RenderWindow,
  * PVWindow has PVRenderView object and passes all events to
    PVGenericRWI (obtained from the same SMRenderModuleProxy as above),
  * PVGenericRWI uses tricky feedback machanism to update PVRenderView
    object (PVRenderViewProxy and its Implementation).

My guess is that I should create another implementation of
PVRenderViewProxy that forwards Render calls to my control.
This new control could take care of forwarding events and displaying
RenderWindow. Am I correct?

Best Regards,
