A custom gtk/cairo widget is pretty easy to update. You have a draw method
in the widget class and call widget_queue_redraw(widget) when you want to
refresh the widget.
You can set the widget's data before the call to widget_queue_redraw()
With the peak data you can use a timer or loop to update a callback that
sets the meter widget's data then calls the redraw command.
