Thanks back.

Aaarrgh! I "fixed" this a day ago :) It seems I forgot to upload the new file. 
I have now, as "Cairoglyphics2.0.1.tar.bz2".
It looks like the donkey image appears in a few places on the pngs but not in 
others, which is a little weird but may be something I did with pattern fills 
or something. The new file seems to work better.

Great! I have been hoping another site could share the tut as I don't have a 
place of my own. I have not downloaded your "cairo.zip", but assume it 
contains the svg. If not, and you can manage it, please provide the 'source' 
which is the SVG tarball.

It's pretty much down and then left to right within a topic.

> Let me know of  any errors.

I didn't see anything really. Am kind of fuzzy as I just got up ;)

Well, if you have space problems hosting it then you must do so. If not, then 
you can keep them around as you like.

I did try to setup an account on launchpad (and prior to that on freedesktop) 
so that others could edit the file in a distributed way, but two things got 
in the way: I'm an idiot and I'm an idiot :D
Still, feel free to hack the svg as you like, observing only the CC licence.

Finally, go visit the cairo website, look for the "cookbook" where there are a 
few pycairo entries that may help.
