gaussian blur, Signed Distance Field creation, etc. However, I think I'm
still the only person who uses it, so I'm either looking to expand its
content and exposure, or else I'm subsume it into the project that actually
uses it most.

cairocks_append_named_path/cairocks_set_named_path, which will let you
append the current path to a named target, and then later set all these
appended paths as the current, single path. This is useful in cases, for
example, when you want stroke a partially-transparent overlay or outline on
top of some surface that may cross over itself, but you don't want it to
actually blend. I know that is a terrible description, but anyone who has
ever done HUD or game UI design using Cairo probably knows what I mean. :)

Very nice idea and very handy to have them in one place :)

One question, the license seems wrong or are they all under GPL? I hope not
