Ok, then let's think on other type of projects.

Well,  a class Designer  is a good one. I like it.

About the canvas there is no problem. I've been working for two years now in
a diagramming engine (closed source still) to represent any kind of diagram
(we are working now with BPMN, Goal Models, Flow and UML diagrams). I will
be happy creating a new diagramming framework using Cairo and Gtk, and a
plugin for MonoDevelop.
