My goal is to write a bridge or adapter for Gtk2::Ex::MindMapView so
that I can use code other than Gnome2::Canvas since libgnomecanvas has

perl yet. Is this correct? Does the Gtk2-perl team have plans to replace
Gnome2::Canvas with another canvas?
No, there's no new cairo-based Perl canvas or similar as far as I know.
No, as far as I know, no one is working on replacing Gnome2::Canvas.
While libgnomecanvas might not be the hottest thing around, it's here to
stay! It won't go away anytime soon, and neither will Gnome2::Canvas.
The API guidelines for the GNOME platform and the bindings guarantee
As I see it, I am left to either:
a) Write my own canvas in perl (possibly using Cairo or OpenGL).
b) Write perl bindings to goocanvas or criawips or some other C canvas.
c) As Torsten pointed out, contribute to the existing efforts.
d) Wait and see what happens.
All four options sound equally hard. :-)
But if you're really interested in a cairo canvas, option c) sounds most
sensible to me.
