Well, I'm working already on my proposed concepts - gerbview is of course a good idea as a start. Currently I like to keep it relative independent from KiCad - first all tests have to run well and it has to be reasonable complete before I'd start to integrate anything.
I hope that I'm going in the right direction and we can review it when I'm ready so far.

Well, if it's integrated I'd try to keep all the old code and just create a second instance of a drawing context. This would allow me to compare also the output of the old vs. the new implementation.
