I agree with this 100% as long as there are no stability issues concerning
GtkCanvas.  If it's just a matter of feature-reordering then I think that it
should be included.  

We're digressing into a chicken/egg thing.  Gnome is built with the Gtk widgets,
but a key Gtk widget cannot be implimented because of a problem with Gnome. 
It's a matter of Gnome trying to be its own widget set, and relegating Gtk to a
"list and button" library.

Overdramatization, as per usual.
