  I was wondering if this API could be used for generating SVG named
groups.  I have seen SVG files generated by pylab containing XML
elements like <g id="axis"> ... </g>.  Can/could cairo generate them
with the SVG backend?  Though that is not a fundamental feature, it
would be a quite welcome one...
