I think that this is a good idea. For example, it would be very
convenient if the Java and C# bindings group the C API calls under the
same objects and share the same objects names.

Since many changes in the API are been introduced in the next version of
Cairo it would be interesting to have a draft document before the
bindings for different languages are updated to the latest API version.

I'm currently taking care of the Mono.Cairo bindings.
