Hi there,

using cairo to print pdf documents (throught evince), I'm afraid that it
generates  PDF documents twice as big as the original PDF documents.

In the URL you will find a document generated using dvipdfmx and the cairo
generated document is almost twice as big as the original document.

I guess the cairo generated document should include superfluous or redundant
information. I guess it might be room for improvements in the PDF generation

I hope it helps,
