Yes, the win32 stuff did land just after the 0.3 snapshot.
Hmm... and we're about to do some huge changes to all of the cairo
API. Maybe I should make a snapshot to let you play with the win32
backend before the big API shakeup.

There are some differences of opinion on how the win32 backend should
be implemented, but what is in CVS should actually be functional,
(modulo a memory leak patch that needs to be applied), and I think
we're happy with the interface, (which simply accepts an HDC).

I don't know. I'll ask Owen to create a win32 page in the cairo wiki
with some of these details.

Ah, that's too bad. Well, we do have an image backend that you should
be able to use just fine then, (and it is in the 0.3.0 snapshot).
