canvas is a new R package implementing a graphics device that emits
interface. Available on CRAN soon, but you can get it here immediately:
If you have access to a beta web browser like Firefox 3.1 or later, you
can see example plots here:
Clicking on one of the plots will take you to a comparator page where
the plot is rendered twice, once with the canvas package and once with
the png(type='cairo') function.
The implementation is almost complete, however there are some parts that
need work like font metrics and dotted/dashed lines. If anyone is
interested in helping flesh out the remaining bits, I'd be much obliged.
