+ Map "sans", "serif" and "monospace" to appropriate names for the platform
+ in order to simplify writing demonstration programs. This has greater merit
+ now that "cairo" means something special to the toy API.
* Extend line caps/joins to include "triangular cap/join" and "no join"

* Use a solid-pattern in place of 1x1 surfaces:
+ * Transparency should be optionally flattened to a new path rather than a bitmap.
+ Currently PS/EPS surface flattens transparency to a bitmap. This can make a

+ flatten transparency in overlapping regions to new paths that have opaque
+ fill matching the transparency projection.
+ * Make cairo_surface_show_page() call XFlush() (and friends).

* Smoke testing, without loss of confidence
