Yes, this sounds like the right idea. I don't want to actually export
any Region/PixRegion data structure. Instead, I'd like to propose the
following two functions for pixel-aligned clipping on a surface:
cairo_surface_clip_rectangle (cairo_surface_t *surface,
int x, int y,
int width, int height);
cairo_surface_clip_restore (cairo_surface_t *surface);
Those should be sufficient for any purpose and should be quite simple
to implement. As always, any other suggestions are quite welcome.

Please feel free to go ahead with this.
