There's nothing in cairo currently, though the topic comes up every once
in a while.

For cairo, it's really a matter of users with actual needs telling us
what they need, (that could be inkscape developers, for example). And
then, together, we'll try to come up with the most "cairo-like" way of
exposing the functionality.

At that point, we'd have an API specified and if someone wanted to hire
someone to implement it, then that might be feasible.
