Why do you keep coming back to SVG?  Cairo is not a SVG renderer.  SVG
is uninteresting to large parts of the world who want a 2D API.

If you want a move_to(0,0) it's simple:

my_cairo_new_path(cairo_t *cr) {
    cairo_new_path (cr);
    cairo_move_to (cr, 0, 0);

and just use that everywhere.  Why complicate things?
