* restore it. The signal emission takes care of calling cairo_save()
* before and cairo_restore() after invoking the handler.
* The signal handler will get a @cr with a clip region already set to the
* widget's dirty region, i.e. to the area that needs repainting. Complicated
* widgets that want to avoid redrawing themselves completely can get the full
* extents of the clip region with gdk_cairo_get_clip_rectangle(), or they can
* get a finer-grained representation of the dirty region with
* cairo_copy_clip_rectangle_list().
* Returns: %TRUE to stop other handlers from being invoked for the event.
% %FALSE to propagate the event further.
