Thanks for the information on Florence! That is exactly what we are
looking for, but with the Gtk backend. (We would use the imperative
API from a variety of scripting languages, including IronPython,
Scheme, Logo, Basic, Ruby, and more). We are stretched too thin at the
moment to be able to help very much, but we'll keep that on our list
to watch.
