[cairo] MOZ-SVG-cairo (was: usable libsvg-cairo?)

Considering the progress on Mozilla SVG, we're looking at pulling the
Mozilla SVG cairo backend into a standalone library, wrapped for use
outside Mozilla. It wouldn't parse the XML, but it would let you use any
parser or content model to drive rendering.

We need this (or something similar) for SVGTerm, a mechanism that
continually updates an SVG scene on one or more remote screens. (Embedding
Gecko would be overkill for this app.)

Is this something that others would like to have?

Would anyone foresee problems with this approach?

I just want to use libsvg-cairo to render SVG into cairo_surface, but
the libsvg-cairo can not pass compilation. I think the code of libsvg-
cairo is out-dated because the rapid change of cairo API. Can I get some
older version of cairo to let the current libsvg-cairo work correctly?

Thanks greatly.
