Short answer is absolutely yes.

I won't release cairo 1.4 until this is fixed.

There's no reason cairo shouldn't allow you to build it with any
combination of the available backends.

It's really totally buildable. The only problem comes up in
boilerplate, which is part of cairo's test infrastructure and not part
of the library itself.

It's not used all over cairo---in fact, it's not used in cairo at all,
(just in the test and perf suites built on top of cairo). And the
change needed here is just to take two functions that currently exist
in one .c file and put them into two .c files. Nothing really

So, yes, this will be happening before 1.4.
