Then this problem naturally extends to all cairo functions dealing with
document structure, including cairo_show_page. We're trying to leave
that kind of non-drawing operation to the application and provide only
minimal support in cairo.
I suggest that providing information about the asynchronous destroy
operation is sufficient and clearly delineates the separation of
responsibility between cairo and the application.
