Hmmm... well - to get canvas functionality, you have to incorporate 4


into your Gtk+ program - plus some very-very small corrections.
It is quite little amount of code, so I am not sure, whether having it as
separate library helps or confuses Gtk+ programmers. Do not forget, that
USERS have to install that little beast too...

If you want stock canvas items, you need more code, but most real programs
tend to define their own canvas items anyway...

P.S. Even so little code is worth sharing - but having too much too tiny
libraries will become a problem one day.
