[cairo] Cryptic clips

I'm trying to clip a number of "shapes" beneath a primary "shape". My
approach so far is this pseudo code:
1 matrix [set translate, rotate and scale]
2 draw clip shape
5 matrix [set translate, rotate and scale]
6 draw shape 1
7 matrix [set translate, rotate and scale]
8 draw shape 2
So, the idea is that shape 1 gets a transformation, shape 2 gets another and
they both are clipped by 'clip shape' (2).
The thing I can't figure out is how to *not* extend the transformation
of 'clip shape' (line 1) *over* the two sub-shapes.
For example, if 'clip shape' is scaled up twice, I don't want shape1 or
shape2 to scale along with it.
I tried inserting indentity_matrix() after line 4, but that just disappears
Forgive me if I'm being dense. Lead has nothing on me :)
