I haven't used any of those, but from what I guessing their just Vector graphic
programs.  So,... as for existing projects for Vector Graphic programs, there


     (Although parts of it are in Python,... as well as C.)

     (It uses QT, not GTK+ though.)

more broad than that (... more broad than just vector graphics applications...)
then I can give you an even larger list of projects to choose from.
