There's a cairo-opengles backend?

One is cairo on top of GL, the other is cairo on top of a rendering
abstraction based on the Render extension that's implemented using GL.
I think that's a better way to go about it, as it means we can use
whatever features the OpenGL driver provides for what we need in cairo
without having to first abstract it by extending a limited API.
