I am a little wary of exposing what I consider an internal
implementation detail of Cairo. More so now that we have opportunities
for semi-native backends that may not be using cairo_gstate_t in their
fast paths.

Can we have a bit of discussion on the concrete use-cases people have
for a named gstate?
