Doesn't exist.

But I've got bits of what you might want for a fast OpenGL backend at 
git://people.freedesktop.org/~anholt/cairo on the gl and
gl-span-renderer branches.  I think I've done most of the boring work so
now somebody could just work on the fun stuff of writing shaders to
accelerate the various combinations of patterns.  Getting it working on
GLES2 should be pretty easy.
