[Bug 8396] clip() is fine, but why isn't there something like a stencil buffer? It's similar to clip except you turn on the stencil then render an image and only where you rendered the image are pixels rendered to the canvas.

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: no change
Rationale: There's no particular reason that there's no stencil buffer, it's
just that we had to draw the line somewhere and it was drawn at what Apple
initially implemented. I imagine we'll add something like a stencil buffer in
some future version, if there is enough demand. We have to get what's specced
now implemented before we can go ahead and add more stuff.
