This is all starting to make a great deal more sense to me. Thanks for the all
of the helpful explanations everyone.
Perhaps one more question: given a cairo surface created via
cairo_surface_create_similar, is it possible to go though the X process of
rasterization without displaying? So that the process of cairo_paint() simply
hands off the already rasterized pixmap to X?
Perhaps this is the purpose of cairo_flush_surface()?
