[cairo] Changing %f to %g in cairo-output-stream.c?

While working on Pango Postscript output from Firefox I noticed that we
are using %f to print double values in cairo-output-stream.c.  Shouldn't
we be using %g instead?  The difference is that %g generates a shorter
representation than %f.  For example, printing 0.3, %g will print 0.3,
while %f prints 0.30000.
