No, I don't think I'd heard of this, (nor heard of Syllable for that

Please feel free to add what you'd like to the cairographics.org

Oddly enough, that doesn't look much like cairo to me. It looks like
somebody has implemented a different 2D graphics API, (perhaps using
cairo). For example, names like "Graphics" and "SetPen" don't exist in
cairo at all, and a concept like a "Path" object is not in cairo either.
And I can't even imagine what "Begin" and "End" do.

But, thanks for sharing.

If someone wanted to do a more "true cairo" for Syllable, then this
document might be useful:
