Sounds like you need something with the power of Tk's Canvas widget. I've 
been playing with that lately and like it a lot. I'm not familiar with the 
details of other GUI toolkits for Ruby. I'd like to hear if they have 
something equivalent to Tk's Canvas widget.

If you decide to play with Tk Canvas, I can send you my code.
