GnomeCanvas should be moved to GTK+ because it is an extremely
neat and useful widget that can be useful in any GTK+ program
and doesn't have any relation to a desktop environment.

The image item type (as I understand it the only one that
depends on gdk_imlib) can be left in GNOME for now. Perhaps
in the future GTK+ will come with something like gdk_imlib -
at that point it can be moved into GTK+ as well.
