Where to start?

For the user perspective, I would start by looking at the 

1. gwave, as it is now.  You might be able to use it as a 
starting point.  As a minimum, a replacement must provide an 
equal or better user experience.

2. The viewer that comes with NGspice, showing the level of 
integration we need.

3. Wave viewers that come with commercial simulators.  What have 
you used?

As it stands, Gnucap has no graphics.  The graphics will always 
not be part of the core.  It could be done with plugins or 
utility programs.  Regardless, it needs to be easy to use, at 
least as good as whatever else is available.

For the coding perspective, look at the libraries you might use 
(GTK+?), the gnucap plugin system and gnucap's own libraries.  
Also,  look at languages ..  compiled C++ or interpreted Python?

That should get you started.
