ah. that eases my mind, to be honest i was scared that we already have a kind of fork and that the current source base is not moving all that fast because the windows version
is somehow dislocated from the oss version.

maybe i just misunderstood you however. are you talking about modifying the codebase to use more generic drawing primitives that fit with both apis as opposed to making a new library which merely provides the cdraw api with a cairo backend? that was my assumption,
but i may have been wrong :)
