[dev] Graphics library that sucks the least?...

Does anyone know of a graphics library that supports a text and menu
widget, simple layout system and is easily portable to any OS? I was
thinking of maybe just creating something like this myself because
it's so specific, but I'd like to see if there's anything like that
around. The closest thing that comes to mind is the plan9port libdraw,
and a suckless library someone was making for Wayland/X. Ideally I
just need something that can be easily ported if the need be. There's
also the fact that Wayland is getting an X driver, so portability is a
small issue when using something like Xlib. The issue then would be
too many layers of abstraction. Lets say I decided to use libdraw,
I'll essentially be doing something like this in the future: libdraw
-> X -> Wayland, unless libdraw is ported to Wayland too- then
everyone wins. Support for Windows is another can of worms that we can
leave shut for now, unless someone would like to do the honors...

Thank you,


P.S. C with Tcl/Tk seems to be a nightmare.
