thats what GtkCanvas is. yet it now lags behind GnomeCanvas because
someone has to actually do the edit whenever GnomeCanvas
changes. Where would you file bugs on a new GtkCanvas? Who would look
at them? When someone finally decides to add the Spline type for a
CanvasLineItem, do they add it to GtkCanvas or GnomeCanvas? And most
importantly for me, what does gtkmm wrap, GtkCanvas or GnomeCanvas?
The same is true of other language bindings.

i'd love a true GtkCanvas as part of GTK+. but the people involved
with GTK+ and GNOME and those who wrote the canvas don't seem to feel
that its the right thing to do, and until they do, forking a version
of it doesn't help much.

--p (stuck at GTK+ 1.2 with 60,000+ statements of gtkmm code ;)
