Thanks, most of these are already distributed under the samples dir so I
don't know if it is worth shipping these in the tarball itself.  I
mostly just use it as a more convenient way to test all the surfaces in
one place.  (and most of the credit for this should be to the
python/java/cairo guys who originally wrote them).
