[cairo] Patterns in PDF output

We've upgraded to Cairo 1.6.4 and even though the improvements are
impressive there's one thing that seems lacking for us.
When outputting a pattern fill it seems a new PDF pattern is created for
each time we use the fill on a path. This is not wrong in itself, but we
have some files where a pattern is reused a lot and that makes the PDF file
becomes pretty heavy. To the extent that Acrobat Reader refuses to render
them and Preview on OS X starts to bog down.
Is there a workaround for this?
