surf = cairo.Surface.create_similar(cairo.CONTENT_COLOR_ALPHA, size,
gives me
TypeError: descriptor 'create_similar' requires a 'cairo.Surface' object
but received a 'int'

Probably because it needs a surface to be similar to, but I simply get
the cairo context using
context = widget.window.cairo_create()

Where am I supposed to get a surface object??

But just to get on the technique. When I have created the surface, I use
context.set_source_surface(surf) and paint my stuff. Then I save the
surface somewhere, and next time I paint, I just
context.mote_to(somewhere); context.set_source_surface(surf);
context.fill() right?
