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.

Yup, that is more sensible. Especially since GdkPixbufs unpadded RGB and RGBA
formats are quite uncommon. But the problem is still there and it is still hard
to integrate cairo with gdk. Unfortunately no one seems to be willing to work
on any solution. :(
