PDFPathObject is an efficient way to draw paths on a Canvas. Do not
instantiate directly, obtain one from the Canvas instead.

class PDFPathObject:
    """Represents a graphic path.  There are certain 'modes' to PDF
    drawing, and making a separate object to expose Path operations
    ensures they are completed with no run-time overhead.  Ask
    the Canvas for a PDFPath with getNewPathObject(); moveto/lineto/
    curveto wherever you want; add whole shapes; and then add it back
    into the canvas with one of the relevant operators.

    Path objects are probably not long, so we pack onto one line

    the code argument allows a canvas to get the operatiosn appended directly so
    avoiding the final getCode
