Have we any plans of writing  _avalon / clone at present?
It seems that no developer is currently woking on this.

I plan to begin with full or partial implementation of it as
my last year project (along with friends) .

Now my understanding of the this  system goes like this -
correct me if i am wrong :=)

1.   Rendering engine --
Do we need to write from scratch or use something like cairo  ??
I dunno if using cairo is really sufficent , or is it ?

2.  Toolkit(?) --
I heard that ms people wrote fully new toolkit.
It seems that we'll have to do the same.
But would the compatibily with other tk's be a concern ?

3.  XAML -- this seems easy compared to other two.

So ,
How about it ?

Any expert comments ?

Are there any components missing in framework on which this may depend ?

How much time etc ?

How do we set off ?

Suggestions and pointers are most welcome.
