Hi Gulik,

Morphic 3 supports arbitrary non-linear coordinate systems. I don't 
understand how you envision rendering over those targets. Morphic 3 has 
a rendering engine that renders on Squeak Display, as current Morphic's 
canvases with Balloon 2D and BitBlt.

Please read my documents, and let's talk about coordinate systems! 
Currently I have implemented Cartesian, LogX and a few cartographic. 
Watch the demo at Smalltalks 2007 at 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90TGhRZUSOo . It is worth watching even 
if you don't understand my Spanish.
