That sounds really interesting Dan, definitely looking forward for this!:)

The end result would you could implement platform or framework-specific drawing but the main logic stays in "Pd land" so you don't have to recreate the widgets themselves as we've done in PdDroiudParty/PdParty. You'd only need to handle "draw rectangle here" etc. This would be similar to how libpd already gives you message and MIDI handling.
