Some time in the next couple of years, I'll need a secure graphics API for
my SecureSqueak project. The basic idea is that I need as thin a layer of
abstraction as possible over various 2-D graphics targets: X11, MS Windows,
Mac, Postscript/other printer APIs, OpenGL, VNC and possibly libraries such
as Cairo. It would also need to do some event handling, as many events rely
on a particular coordinate system. GUIs such as Morphic or Tweak would run
on top of this.

Does your Morphic3 project have a base which could target all these? So far
all I'm seeing is talk about bizarre coordinate systems.
