re libgnomecanvas. I do actively maintain foocanvas, which is a non-aa,
non generic-affine-translations version of the canvas. It is great for
"normal" widgets, and is currently used by at least Nautilus and
Gnumeric. The API is very nearly compatible with Gnome-canvas unless you
use AA or affines. It also works much better with Gtk2 than the gnome
canvas ever did.

Do we want to expose this anywhere in our API, in order to have a
working replacement for at least part of what libgnomecanvas does?
