Can anyone explain the function of the methods:
* cairo_int_status_t _cairo_win32_save_initial_clip (HDC hdc, 
cairo_win32_surface_t *surface)
* cairo_int_status_t _cairo_win32_restore_initial_clip 
(cairo_win32_surface_t *surface)

These throw up warning/ errors when compiling and eventually results in 
missing symbols when on Windows CE.  On the other hand, these were not 
there in 1.4.4.  These functions are called from:
1>_cairo_win32_restore_initial_clip referenced in function 
1>_cairo_win32_save_initial_clip referenced in function 

What do these two functions provide?  Can I remove them and replace them 
with an older version.  Any advice?
