Making a rectangle of zero width not render is logical, but it is still a
legal rectangle object and can be interacted with, so it should have
geometry semantics.

Giving zero widths/heights a small value is an ugly hack.  There must be a
better way.

Is there no bottleneck in Cairo where you could discard ineligible shapes?
