Yes, I've added this bug to the cairo ROADMAP. I put a giant rambling
comment in the bug report, but after all is said and done, I think you
should ignore most of what I wrote there and implement
cairo_scaled_font_text_extents. I think it will be the cleanest
solution and it should actually be quite easy to implement on top of
_cairo_scaled_font_text_to_glyphs and cairo_scaled_font_glyph_extents.
