Adding Blur in Cairo

I've made several widgets now that light up. I've worked around it mostly through gradients. Radial gradients are perfect for a circular LED. A linear gradient filling a carefully shaped path got me by for a square LED. But now I'm making an analog oscilloscope type widget, and a 7 segment LED and gradients aren't cutting it. If only you could do blur in Cairo.

Oh, but you can...
