far from me to detract from Pigment (I recently saw it's growing a GLES
backend), while the Python API is very nice, the C API is nowhere as
nice as Clutter's; its entire animation framework and item manipulation
is done inside an high level language, while the C layer must manipulate
matrices which is very GL-like; and if I wanted to wrap it in, let's
say, Perl I'd have to reimplement it all. while this might be good for a
low level library like D-Bus, where syntactic sugar should hide the gory
details of the marshalling and demarshalling of data, I'm not as sure
that a canvas should work the same way (I'm talking here as a bindings
and an application developer, not as a Clutter developer).
