Gergo Erdi has had similar problems. You should speak to him. Also, I
suggest that you try it out before declaring it useless. As I understand
it most of the problems with the canvas are problems that have been
there since the 1 version. Apparently the newer one is at least more

Feel free to wrap anything that needs to be wrapped, and/or suggest that
this foocanvas thing is spun off into a separate library.
