This is great news, Steve, thanks for keeping the python bindings
caught up with the latest Cairo.
Does this by any chance support the Quartz backend, and if not, what
would it take to hook PyCairo up to Quartz?

You need to lay out the user interface components visually, by hand,
with total control over where they go. Automated LayoutManagers don’t
cut it. A corollary of this is that you can’t move a UI layout from
one platform to another and have the computer make everything fit.
Computers don’t lay out interfaces by themselves any better than they
can translate French to English by themselves. -- Jens Alfke
