Carl is right, since the gtk-doc inline descriptions would go into cairo.c 
which does nothing but delegating to gstate most of the time,  one would need 
two editor windows,  one for the doc in cairo.c and one where the actual 
functionality is written or updated (e.g. cairo_surface.c).

Also the api is pretty small compared to gtk and not likely (?) to change in 
huge leaps in the near future, so an external documentation should be fine. 
Is it docbook then, or rather html/latex or some other format?
