For the cairo_unscaled_font_t => cairo_ft_unscaled_font_t change: 
the API that you are changing is all stuff that is currently planned
(and was originally planned) to be moved to be backend independent.

But even if it wasn't planned to move - we really don't do public
subclasses for functions that work on subclasses, for instance:

cairo_ft_scaled_font_lock_face (cairo_scaled_font_t *scaled_font);


cairo_pattern_add_color_stop_rgb (cairo_pattern_t *pattern,
                                  double offset,
                                  double red, double green, double blue)

Inheritance of structures isn't something we expose in the public API.
While this is private API, my tendency is to design private APIs along 
similar principles to public APIs.

The other renames? Well, it's your code base, you get to pick the

(What's there now is a mix between cairo conventions, my modifications
to cairo conventions, and what was there when I picked up the source

Would I happier if renames were done when I didn't have a bunch of
outstanding changes? Of course. But resolving conflicts probably won't
take more than 15 minutes for me if you think committing now is going to
make the cache changes easier.
