The implementation looks just fine to me. Well done!

I'd feel fine with you pushing this out right away. Here are a few
little things you might consider:

 1. It might be nice to rebase the branch onto the latest master,
    (you've already got one merge at the tip of your branch, and you
     might end up with a second one soon).

 2. While rebasing you might take advantage of the chance to fix a
    couple of misspelling in the current f84de37e9 commit, (though I
    like "meat surface" quite a lot for some reason). :-)

 3. A nice addition would be a test case that exercises this new code
    path. But that needn't hold this work out.

And afterward, it would be nice for anyone motivated to implement PDF
or PS fill_stroke functions. They should be _extremely_ simple now
that Emmanuel has done this ground work.

Thanks again! And sorry about the slow review process, (but thanks for
reminding me to take a look).

Please, anyone, feel free to ping me if you've got outstanding cairo
work that you feel is blocking on review from a cairo maintainer.
