What purpose would there be to having Cairo require DevIL, rather than 
just having there be a middle layer shim library that can use DevIL to 
load data into cairo surfaces/cairo patterns?  There isn't anything 
preventing you from creating cairo_image_pattern_create() on top of 
existing public cairo APIs from another library.  I wouldn't call it 
cairo_ to avoid confusion, but something similar.
