PyGooCanvas is a wrapper which exposes the goocanvas API to the
python world.  It is fairly complete; most of the API are covered.

The documentation is done, anyway bug reports on docs are really

Like the GTK+ library, PyGTK and GooCanvas itself PyGooCanvas is
licensed under  the GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both
free software and proprietary applications.

PyGooCanvas requires:

 o Goocanvas >= 0.9.0
 o PyGObject >= 2.10.1 (2.11.3 to build the docs)
 o PyGTK >= 2.10.4
 o PyCairo >= 1.2.0

Bug reports should go to
