Fantastic!  Sodipodi is an awesome program.

I would really really appreciate it (i.e. would owe you large amounts
of beer) if you could take a look at the CANVAS_CLEANUP branch of
gnome-libs to see how the canvas is being fixed.  I think some of the
performance problems will go away once the cleanup in that branch is

I don't think libart is slow per se; the problem is that it still has
correctness issues.  It should be fixed and then profiled.

So far people have sent me exactly zero patches for the CANVAS_CLEANUP

If you are interested in working on this, please tell me so that I can
tell you about the changes I was making.

Is this necessary?

I don't know how much you want to depend on a development gnome-libs,
or even the CANVAS_CLEANUP branch, but I would like to add a way to
override the way the canvas draws its background.  This would be
useful for omnipresent things such as a grid.
