#!/usr/bin/env python
This is used to drive many of the examples across the backends, for
regression testing, and comparing backend efficiency.

You can specify the backends to be tested either via the --backends
switch, which takes a comma-separated list, or as separate arguments,

    python backend_driver.py agg ps cairo.png cairo.ps

would test the agg and ps backends, and the cairo backend with output
to png and ps files. If no arguments are given, a default list of
backends will be tested.

Interspersed with the backend arguments can be switches for the Python
interpreter executing the tests. If entering such arguments causes an
option parsing error with the driver script, separate them from driver
switches with a --.
