I think this is reasonable enough.

It seems a little odd that we'll end up with no object called a
cairo_font_t. But, at least we do have "font" in all the names now, so
users should be able to find what they're looking for, (where
cairo_face_t had me concerned in that regard).

Yes, that's a nice fix.
