Yes, that much I did check---as well as gv. And both work great.

What would be an interesting datapoint here is if someone can
demonstrate this file failing to do the right thing with respect to
actual printing onto paper of different sizes.

Then, we'd have a bug that we could use to demonstrate a fix with the
upcoming DSC comment stuff.

But that's not really all that important, as the current direction of
the DSC comment stuff is for cairo to get out of the way as much as
possible so the application can do whatever it needs to do. And in
that case, it's no longer cairo's problem to provide the right answer,
and instead it is up to the application to get all the details right.
