Re: [cairo] Hit detect surface?

This talk about GnomeCanvas needing complicated hit detection made me wonder if Cairo could support hit detection. This could be done with an entire new surface type and thus not affect any existing cairo backends. As I see it it would work something like this:

I also have needed to do that. In fact I think complicating cairo is unnecessary. I just create another surface of 32 bits-per-color and render everything again there. This new surface I use I refer to as select surface (hit-surface for you). The color used when re-rendering is indeed and ID (I have to talk with cairo guys about this) of the figure (rectangle, ellipse, circle...) that was rendered on the "original-surface".

Taking external events like mouse or joystick-motion or whatever I just have to read in the "hit-surface" and see the ID to know which element was drawn on that point. In my case the ID means the widgets drawn there, in yours, it can means the structure that contains the figure with the operators and colors used,

This is similar to a method used in OpenGL.
