Earlier this year I tried updating the PHAT toolkit to use the Cairo
backend for rendering (because the drawing code used by PHAT to
render the fans is deprecated).
The problem I found was that in order to get Cairo to draw the phans
on the desktop (without obliterating the desktop) desktop compositing
was required. I went round in circles looking at the documentation
trying to find a way to get it working without compositing enabled
(and without using deprecated code) but by the time I got to looking in
the GTK source itself I decided to make the fans optional while
additionally allowing shift to be used in combination without dragging
the slider for greater precision (and ctrl for even more).
I called it 'phin' and it can be found in the petri-foo source if you
want to look.
