I can't help asking -- what's "medium-complexity"? I'm not a GUI programmer,
but these are things I wanted to implement at moments:
- a configuration dialog (several tabs with some options in each)
- an application to show a program graph (and another one for parse tree)
- drawing a diagraph (two axes and several data series)
Supposedly, the first should be doable. What about others? They'd require
a fairly complete 2D layer.

What do you mean?

So, the code to implement graph drawing would have to be freestanding
function that takes window as parameter. What does it buy?
