Switch win32 svg renderer backend to cairo
Why? # Less problems for the user, as they don't have to deal with downloading GDI+ if they're on an older system (pre-XP). # Some bugs in GDI+ are unfixable (or at least, would take a lot of effort). For example the spread method for radial gradients, bug 296411. # Consistent behavior between platforms, up to the quality of the respective cairo backends. # Saving effort adding features for GDI+, which likely won't be used past 1.8.x. The patch for <svg:textPath>, bug 282579, is an example of this.
