This is part of what I've been thinking about too. Provide a library of 
display routines that viewers can use. Make the viewers expose their drawing 
commands into the same API, so we can just say "display this sequence on the 
canvas", instead of "write an A at position 310, 415". This will allow people 
to build up more and more complicated viewers (MegaWidgets) by composing 
simpler ones.

Actually, this library could be used to display everything twice, intermediate 
 display in the viewer and final display in the figbuilder if we still go with 
the double display strategy.
