Thanks a TON for doing all that Benjamin!  I can only imagine how
painful it was.

This is a totally naive question and only for future reference, but now
that you have gnome-canvas using Cairo how big of a leap would it be for
Evolution to just draw with Cairo directly and ditch gnome-canvas, or do
you still see a legitimate need for a canvas library?

Anyway, I already owe other people some code reviews so I'll put away my
hackers hat for a few days and try to look at this over the weekend.  It
may need to sit on a branch for a little while longer because I don't
want Evolution requiring gtk+-3.0 just yet, but since that code doesn't
get much attention I don't foresee problems merging when the time comes.

Thanks again!
