About a year ago Torsten and muppet informed me that the Gnome2::Canvas

So I suppose it's time to make the switch to Cairo. Just one thing 
concerns me at the moment. Can I use Glib::Object::Subclass with Cairo 
to create and respond to signals as I can with Gnome2::Canvas ?

Cairo is *not* a canvas - but you can use Cairo to create a canvas
widget using Glib::Object and Gtk2.  Some have already started doing
this in C, like goocanvas or ccc (criawips cairo canvas); if you need
something more specialised I'm sure you can create something in pure

Also, Cairo is not based on Glib, so you don't get to subclass its data
types using Glib::Object::Subclass.
