I think (<--still very new to Cairo) that this is going to be something
that falls not within the scope of your "drawing context" but rather the
"surface" you are using. PNG surfaces have a utility function to help
with this, though I'm guessing you could probably dump raw pixel data
from Image surfaces using the _from_data function and using whatever IO
routines you fancy.
