This is a good question... you might want to raise a bug against pycairo:

I'm not sure who maintains pycairo - it seems to have been untouched
for the last 8 months and is still languishing in cvs. Anyone?

In any case, a prerequisite for adding quartz support to the binding
should really be to mark quartz as supported. I have a patch series
sitting around to do that, it adds in the documentation sections for
quartz and adds (IIRC) 'since 1.6' to the relevant apis. I've not
applied this because we don't have all the tests passing yet (I'll
take that to another thread). However, the API has been stable for
some time, it could just be done.
