[cairo] [Recording Surface] How to Replay partial region of contents?

I think replaying back a recorded surface to another Cairo surface would 
be slightly slower than doing the Cairo calls directly to that second 

But perhaps not by much. And if you do a lot of other work before 
generating those Cairo calls (such as interpreting SVG for instance...), 
that work is avoided when replaying the surface.

So I would suspect this would be a good speed improvement.
