I'll look into extending cairo-test.c to handle win32 and glitz; even
though win32 just chains to the image surface for ARGB (as the comment
says), just a compilation-only test would probably help.  Which tests
would fail if they were given a RGB24 surface instead?  (That question
can probably best be answered just by running the tests, I think; I'll
try that tomorrow.)

I'll shortly have all three platforms (Linux, OSX, Win32.. four
counting glitz, or maybe 6, depending on how you look at it...) with
up-to-date cairo builds, so I'd be happy to do some smoketest builds. 
That said, I'm going to disappear for a vacation for a month mid-July

We may also be able to set up linux/osx/win32 tinderboxes doing cairo
builds from CVS and running the tests; I think the build config may
need a little tweaking to get it going under win32, but it shouldn't
be too bad.  I may be able to set that up before I take off..
