As far as API is concerned Cairo based canvas would allow for more 
natural (IMHO) PostScript behaviour (without pen%, brush% and color%).

Btw. have you seen Shoes (a Ruby project)? It binds many native toolkits 
and draws using cairo. The GUI part is written in C but maybe you could 
find some inspiration in its code.
