That is funny: I knew about canvas widgets, but I never saw the similarity
between them and the interface I am looking for. There is indeed much
similarity. I think the main difference is in the focus of the API: the API
of a canvas is made to handle objects, and provide afterwards modification
options. The counterpart seems to be a heavier interface for simple
operations, like adding a segment to a path.

Thanks for pointing me in this direction.
