This is really exciting. I've been thinking for a while that a
cairo-based LOGO implementation would be a fun thing to play with with
my 7-year-old son. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

So thanks for your efforts.

Thank you. The simplicity of the API has been a primary design goal, and
it is encouraging to see some evidence of success here.

Of course, this is a "shoulder of giants" situations as the cairo API
was certainly not invented from whole cloth, (and the implementation
relies on the results of much previously published research). I'm hoping
to meet some of those giants, and personally thank them some time.
