We used it in Gjallar, but I ended up rewriting Mewa in a different
style so we do not use Mewa anymore.

You need to go through the Mewa code and canvasify it. Pretty easily
done, Mewa is quite small. We did that, until we dropped it. I might
have some Mewa version laying around that is canvasified, ask me for it
and I can take a look. ;)

Yes. :) But as I said, I ended up writing something of our own due to
several factors.

I did consider moving to Magritte (Mewa is after all not developed
anymore), but decided to keep things small and simple and I also had the
notion that a tailor made framework for Gjallar would be easier to work
in. Since I haven't used Magritte I can't say that that is so - but I
think so.
