a widget ?

There was in gtk+-1.2, but gtk2 (pretty much) removed this. I have
drawing areas in my app which go up to several million pixels in each
axis and gtk scrolls them fine. Memory isn't allocated for invisible
pixels, so there's no limit there either.

You can have problems with a 16 bit coordinate limit on drawing
operations on very large drawing areas: you may need to do some
clipping yourself.
