 Would it be cunning to move it over to libgtk+ and then just have a
#define gnome_canvas* gtk_canvas* type thing, for legacy code. I assume
that most people installing GNOME would have gtk+ too ;)

 I don't think there is a massive problem, as long as legacy code compiles,
and it's trivial to change all the gnome_ to gtk_ in peoples code. Of
course, there is the extra 0.06 seconds to process all the name mangling
