The since tags are not recognized by gtk-doc without the colon.

This fixes a gtk-doc warning:
src/cairo/doc/public/../../src/cairo-gl.h:58: warning: Symbol
name not found at the start of the comment block.

Gtk-doc on my system pretty-prints the <programlisting>s with syntax
highlighting and prepended line numbers, and does not preserve all white
space. In some cases the tag is used for non-code snippets where white
space preservation is wanted, and line numbers are not. The <screen> tag
fits these cases better.
