I decided to do something simpler -- just create two pictures for each
xlib surface.  The pattern-related picture attributes were already
getting set each time the pattern was used, so I really don't need a
surface-per-pattern.  I can optimize that at least so we don't huge
amounts of redundant protocol.

I'm not sure what to do with the pixman surfaces; I suggest that we
actually change pixman to have an attribute which controls whether the
clip list affects sources so we can just set that for cairo.
