[cairo] char* vs. unsigned char*

Your plan seems sensible to me -- signed char for text data, unsigned char 
for binary data.  That fontconfig uses unsigned char for UTF-8 data is 
probably a mistake.  It does help find places where the strings are passed 
into locale-sensitive libc string functions, but the annoyance of the many 
needed casts is huge.
