AFAIK, David Turner proposed the same thing and contributed patches
that would make this easier. (Although David's goal was to do with
multithreaded usage I think.)
If you look at the Cairo roadmap, these changes are scheduled to be in
the main tree in future.

This took quite a few hours to accomplish, since I am using FreeType under Win32 and I have to manually strip out the fontconfig stuff, which is unneeded and doesn't work on Win32 anyways (that I'm aware of). What are the chances that we could get someone to add a new cairo feature #define to separate the fontconfig stuff from the FreeType stuff? FreeType fonts in no way depend on fontconfig, so it doesn't make sense to require it.
