I plan to try Qt's "canvas" (the Graphics View Framework) for rendering
everything. If that turns out to be too slow, then the "text edit area
with embedded objects" approach would be tried.

My intention is to bring to Emacs a powerful and modern display system
(or at least demonstrate that it is possible.) With Qt we have from the
start cross-platform support, a powerful 2D graphics system and a
boatload of widgets.

Hope this answers your question.
