changes in cl-cairo2

Johann Korndoerfer kindly submitted a patch that adds patterns to cl-cairo2, and also includes some code cleanup. Here is the example Johann contributed to the tutorial, a rainbow created with patterns: Thanks for the nice work, Johann! I am happy that others also find cl-cairo2 useful. cl-cairo2 still suffers from the elusive floating point bug (possibly in libcairo), I am still working on that. In the meantime, you can work around that by not generating PS files directly, but converting them from PDF or SVG files. Since appears to be down, I took the opportunity to migrate the repository to git, which I am now hosting on my webpage. I find git to be much more convenient than SVN, especially when it comes to ease of distribution. As before, the package remains ASDF-installable. Update: the GIT repository is here, but can also be found from the cliki page for cl-cairo2.
