The only example I have is in ruby, it's my 'flow chart' base editor. Maybe 
Sebastian has one.

Dunno the requirement. But you can do full painting, what is a little bit 
lacking is paintop options (and filters options is no very well managed in 
kross either). But if there aren't enough classes or missing features, they 
should be added to the kross binding.
