Does it mean utilizing DiaCanvas (2 or otherwise) in Dia or making 
DiaCanvas a generic widget for use in GTK2/GNOME2?  Just curious.

DiaCanvas (2 if you want) is already a generic widget, originally a spin off
of dia's canvas, now a more generic facility (or so I understand). It seems
it features a lot of cool features, including all incantations for Pango
support (and rotation IIRC).  Less code, more good code.

DiaCanvas is indeed a generic widget. It resembles the GnomeCanvas API.
It does use Pango for text and can do rotation. All elements on the
canvas can be rotated or sheared (this includes text and images).

Another feature I like is that DiaCanvas does not need "connection
points" anymore, putting to rest another popular FAQ (especially wrt UML
classes). It uses a simple constraint solver to keep connections in
