I still very much feel that the filtering should not be producing black
When the repeat is set to black, Cairo should produce a result
equivalent to setting the clip region to the transform of the rectangle
surrounding the source image and then filtering the image as though the
edge pixels are repeated.
The difference is that if you zoom in the image, the edge is a sharp
anti-aliased straight line, rather than a blur the size of the zoom factor.
This is what all users expect when they draw a transformed (especially
rotated) images. Anybody who really wants the current blurry result can
achieve this by adding a row of black pixels all around the edge of
their source image.
It is also needed to avoid double-multiply artifacts when the user sets
the clip to a region that lines up with the edge of the source image.
