And arcs and... (depending on how general a transform you want to support.)

At some point in the future, we'll move to a new drawing model for
GDK with anti-aliasing, transforms, alpha-compositing, and so forth.

Until then, I think it makes the most sense to keep GDK simple and have
people use something like libart and/or the GNOME canvas if they want
fancy stuff.
