That could be quite interesting. I know people see a need for a
replacement for libgnomecanvas for one. It would be interesting to
hear from those who know what the problems with its API are so that
they could be avoided this time around.

And it seems like it shouldn't be _too_ hard to make something that
could work with both GTK+ and QT. I know that there are a couple of
different approaches to abstracting/combining their event loops, so we
might be able to start with something like that as a basis.

This bit isn't too friendly, "it is not open source at this
point. Redistribution in whole or part is not permitted without
explicit permission."

Are the terms of this code expected to change? As is, I won't be
looking at it, and it's not clear how much collaboration we could do.
