The idea came from an embedded browser development project. I want to 
porting WebKit to a new platform, the platform can only provide video 
address programming interface. So I need to porting DirectFB, Cairo, GTK 
and so on. However the hardware resources are limited, can't running so 
much software, I need to find a more lightweight and high quality 
solutions, so I develop the picasso library. The same code base can run 
on different graphics system does not depend on the features of graphic 
system, this is the goal of Picasso.
