Yeah, I left off my standard cairo_show_test disclaimer:

<font size="fine-print">

Implementation of the features described herein shall not be perceived
as serious claims concerning the performance of cairo_show_text and
related APIs. These APIs are toys and should not be employed in
industrial use. Users of cairo_show_text use it at their own risk with
no guarantee of lovely glyph positioning or proper layout. As with
most toys, these toys will break if handled inappropriately. Users are
cautioned to exercise restraint in their expectation of performance
from these and other toys. Play nice. Be fair. Don't shoot your eyes
