Hi Behdad,

Thanks for the suggestions. I'd have a go at that if I didn't feel like I'm 
juggling too many things at once right now. (It also doesn't help that git gives 
me headaches whenever I try to do the "simplest" thing which makes me inclined 
to avoid it. It's a shame that git seems to make more advanced uses the default 
thereby requiring more detailed knowledge for the simple use cases. When I find 
the time I'll spend a few days learning how git works, then write some cairo git 
docs and come back to this (if no one else has addressed it by then).)
