This is definetly something we need.  I am very happy you have taken
over this task.  Is this project based on the Gtk-- drawing engine?
Have you guys considered using the GnomeCanvas instead?  

I would like to see the Chart/Graph component have some ways of
interactively editing the Spreadsheet, and the Canvas gives you this
sort of power (ie, high level drawing object, automatically repaints
exposed areas for you, event dispatching).

Yep.  The formating code in Gnumeric will eventually make its way into
a library.
