What you've done looks interesting. However, before venturing too far,
I'd recommend looking at the other graphics APIs for Python and keeping
as compatible as possible to the way they do things (without offending
your sense of "Pythonicity" or conflicting with the Cairo mechanisms,
of course). Sadly, I'm not really up-to-date with what people use for
canvas-style drawing in Python - once upon a time there was the Piddle
project, renamed to Sping, and then seemingly abandoned - but I'm sure
a few people can suggest similar projects.

Keep up the good work, though!
