[cairo] cropping an SVG image

Is it in any way possible to crop an SVG surface? I've found code in one
of Carl's answers to do the very thing for PNGs
but I just can't get it to work for an SVG or PDF... The trick seemed to
be to create a smaller surface and copy the wanted part from the big
surface onto that one.

(Sorry if this is a straightforward thing; I'm _really_ new to cairo).

Any help appreciated,
