Roughly speaking, the current cairo code is based on my old code in


and Jan's double-buffering code that draws into an image surface.  I
think a possible next step would be to see if one can drop the latter
and use Daniel's Xdbe code instead as in the Xlib version.  If this
works, then it will make the cairo code simpler and more maintainable.
