I am testing it right now, starting by playing the demos and tests, of course.

BUT (there is often a but, no?) two demos fail after spitting out a number of files:
```
C:\PrgCmdLine\luacairo
> lua5.1.exe draw.c.lua
```
lua5.1.exe: draw.c.lua:297: bad argument #2 to 'font_extents' (cairo.FontExtents.mt expected, got table)
```stack traceback:

draw.c.lua:402: in function 'draw_diagram'
draw.c.lua:440: in function 'diagram'
draw.c.lua:466: in function 'main'

C:\PrgCmdLine\luacairo

```
lua5.1.exe: diagram.c.lua:420: bad argument #1 to 'matrix_init' (cairo.Matrix.mt expected, got table)

Running on WinXP Pro SP2.

Good work, anyway!

PS.: don't search specifically, I did it and didn't find a clear answer. But if you know a way to make animated Gifs with Cairo, I would be glad. Otherwise, I suppose I will generate a bunch of files and some tool to assemble them in Gif format.

Too bad MNG never took off.
