[cairo] pycairo - translate question

Hi, not sure if this is the appropriate list.
Can one, within a single cairo context, do this:
<pycairo commands to draw a square at 0,0>
<pycairo commands to draw a circle at 0,0>
<pycairo commands to draw a Black Night at 11,44>
The idea is to keep all the <drawing commands> relative to 0,0 and use
translate (and scale etc later) to actually move the results around the
canvas. I picture it a bit like a stamp that moves to (x,y) and then draws
the vectors in <> down at that point, then moves on.
My actual code is building a stack of pointers to draw() functions (in other
objects) that gets run in a tight loop: pop, draw, pop, draw, etc.
At the moment my tests are all over the place. Is there a way to reset the
overall transform between each <> section?
