I don't yet have a suitable Sugar development environment to test any of this new gtk3 dependent work, and I have a minimal network connection for at least a week or two so no chance of downloading/building new test environments.

Happy New Year!

No worries for the delay!  Let me explain a bit the two patches:

The first one, "port to Cairo", is a mid-step previous to port to GTK+
3 [1].  This does not require a development env, should work with
stable Sugar.  The graphics are nicer, they get antialiasing!

The second patch is a feature I've been discussing with Gonzalo, under
this premise of pedagogues: "It is useful to move the clock hands in
order to learn the hour".  I was about to open discussion for that
feature implementation, but first I did a simple test and ended
implementing it :-) .  So let's open discussion now, I will send a new
email for that.
