I think I should give you a hint about who you are discussing with ;-)
Murray Cumming is the maintainer of glibmm, gtkmm (and friends), gnomemm
and clearly has influence on the gdamm and sigc++ project.
He has made wise decisions (IMHO) on the gtkmm project and has proven to
know template magic and STL interoperability.
I would trust him to design the one true cairomm interface ;-)
Clearly gtkmm is not the most lightweight wrapper but it maps gtk+'s C
style onto a C++ style with STL, multiple inheritance and runtime type
inference * (dynamic_cast)
I always looked towards gtkmm as an example of good class design (better
*) I don't know exactly the long name of RTTI
Disclaimer: Yes, I have come to meet M.C. personally and liked him, so
my view is clearly biased.
