Hi Knut,

The attached patch implements a new backend based on Cairo.
To test select the desired output formats by any combination of the '--pdf', '--ps' and '--svg' command line options and  add '-dbackend=cairo'. The '--svg' option must precede the '-dbackend=cairo' option.

How hard would it be to also add support for -dpreview and -dcrop in the Cairo backend?

I'm experimenting with a workflow involving LilyPond-generated cropped SVGs, and I find that the SVGs generated via Cairo cause much less trouble than those made with the old SVG backend. (Of course, I can work with manually-cropped SVGs for the time being.)

Thanks so much for working on the Cairo implementation!
