I tried to figure out, how to draw. I generated a GtkDrawingArea, but I
could not figure out, how to get my hands on the gc

Something like this I should be able to do, 'plot_area' is the name of
the GtkDrawingArea widget.

	Win = ssnd(plot_area, 'GN_drawingarea_get_window', []),
	% Gc = ssnd(plot_area, 'Gdk_gc_new', []),  <- this does not work, and
there should already be a define GC in the window?
	ssnd(plot_area, 'Gdk_draw_line', [Win, Gc, 10, 10, 100, 200]),

P.S. It the future (tm), the cairo and gdk-cairo drawable would be nice
to have included, but that's gtk 2.8 stuff. The point being, that the
same code calling the cairo functions could draw also pdf, png, etc, not
just gdkdrawable ... 

best regards
