Cool. It all works.
I stuck some stuff up on it.
Nothing much really.

I was thinking that probably the best way to do the map stuff, would be to
have a widget that is derived from GnomeCanvas, say loom_map, and so you'd
just do
GtkWidget *map;
map = loom_map_new ();
gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (container), map);

and have this loom_map have functions like set_map, get_map, and other
things I can't think of now :). This loom_map widget would do all the
required stuff for displaying the map, splitting it up into smaller items,
so the programmer never has to think about terrain_item's etc.

Another thing, what args should the terrain_item have? I've got map width,
map height, z, map, tile_width, tile_height. I can't really think of
