Yes, exactly. We don't need to create a branch for this work. Just start
using the latest trunk version and email the source changes to this list
so they can be checked in by someone with svn write access. We will give
write access to developers who start to provide significant
contributions, because that will obviously make development more
efficient. And this improvement to enable Cairo to be used instead of
CDraw will certainly be a significant contribution!
