This one is for fun. It provides a way to expose a Route which reveals an indeterminate animated canvas.
This is meant for physics/visual simulations and demo's. If you want access to the canvas to draw something cool, this is it.
It's similar to the flutter "funvas" project, and is designed for quick and dirty graphics work. It does not provide shorthand like funvas does.

Funvas code can be dropped in as is usually, the shorthand API is supported, and a small amount of code ported. However, we don't bring in funvas directly.
Just drop the funvas code into the paint() method.
I know it's strange to have 2 api's (e.g. time and t), but funvas is really nice, and the programming style of brevity and hacking is nicely in the spirit of this kind of graphics programming. So use the shorthand for fun, use the full names if your writing more readable code.
Ultimately, up to you.
