[Gtk-sharp-list] System.Drawing in a GTK# app

Have you looked at rsvg-sharp? I've been playing around with a little
budget management app and I was going to use that and gecko-sharp to
render some nice looking charts.

That should be easier than getting System.Drawing and Gtk# to play nice
together and I believe it would allow you to theme your charts with CSS.

The only downsides that I've noticed so far:
(1) a bit slow to render the pixmap (but you can cache the pixmap).
(2) I haven't figured out a good way to automatically zoom (re-render)
the image to fill the available space. This would make better use of the
benefits of vector graphics.
