Yes, this looks like it has some good properties. It's also allows for
us to extend existing _create functions similarly in the future
(perhaps cairo_ps_surface_create_language_level_3).

And it does follow the general cairo tendency of pushing values into
function names rather than adding extra arguments.

Presumably that's a comment for our sake now, and not the way we'll
document this function. ;-)

The underscore is a bit ugly, but I suppose we'd have the same problem
with an enum, (and I'm not interested in a string here).

So I guess I'm in favor of this. What do you think, Emmanuel?
