tk/cairo

I have been a bit sidetracked on my Lisp programming by a really cool Lisp project. I was looking for a cross-platform Lisp library, and I came accross ltk, which is a really great little gui library built on tk. The only problem is that tk is a bit ancient-looking on *nix, so I have spent the last few hours replacing the xlib calls with cairo calls.

Nothing really to see yet, but cairo is really a great library, and after using it for a few hours I am really excited about the future of the Linux desktop.

I will post some screenshots on Monday when I have more done. Patches are coming after.
