Good, some native win32 support will be good for Cairo I think. I'm
wxPython to display it, seems to work fine. The Cairo API is way better
Ghostscipt, which makes it easier to work with, and faster.

Sure, I'll clean it up, and write some docs, hopefully I have some time

Sure, I'll look into it tomorrow, I'll test if it also happens in c,
I also found out it crashes when I don't set the color, and call stroke.
