Does this introduce a dependency on GLib and GObject from within Cairo?
Though it does appear to be a conditional compile, most distros will
build with GObject support, so even if you don't want to pull GLib into
your address space, for whatever reason.

This might be the right decision, but it does have some downsides, and
they should be more explicit.
