Then do a pangocairo.CairoContext(cairo_context) to get a

  cr = cairo.Context (surface)
  pcr = pangocairo.CairoContext (cr)
  layout = pcr.create_layout ()


  pcr.show_layout (layout, ...)

The confusing point here is that pangocairo.CairoContext is a subclass
of a cairo.Context that adds support for rendering to it using Pango.
It's not a subclass of pango.Context.
