Not sure I fully understand your comment.  There are already functions for
setting the color, pattern, etc.  Are you asking for GraphicsContext accessors
for the color & pattern?  I could add them if you like, but noone will call
them, currently.

The reason I needed these accessors is because the chromium implementation
switches on the fly between GDI rendering (for speed) and skia rendering for
functions that win32 doesn't support (such as gradients).  Normally, the
platform layer will handle the gradient, pattern, etc when it goes to render. 
However, chromium needs to know ahead of time, so it can decide which rendering
path to use.
