But hasn't the precedent been set for GDK to create cairo surfaces from
Pixbufs. This seems to be the sensible approach to leave cairo as the low-level
library for interfacing with the various target devices and leave GdkPixbuf as
the library for manipulating pixel data (which should mirror cairo and provide
pre-multiplied ARGB if wants to ultimately push pixels to hardware).

Closing as WONTFIX is a purely personal opinion from a cairo PoV. I suggest to
raise the topic once again on the various gnome developer lists and the cairo
mailing list to encourage a resolution to this long standing issue.
