[cairo] Fill not overlapping stroke?

My question was basically asked here:
...the problem at hand is this: If I want to draw an object with a
fill and fat stroke, I can set up the path, then fill_preserve it, then
stroke it. That works fine for opaque objects, but if I do that with an
alpha channel, the stroke gets alpha blended into the fill, so that half
the line looks like I want, but the other half is a half-color. This
isn't too bad with a thin stroke but if the stroke is pretty fat, it
really doesn't look right.
I've enclosed a PNG of an example. The same rectangle rendered on a
white background, one with alpha = 1.0, and one with alpha = 0.5
Is there any solution to this?
I know an example was posted recently which works if you want both stroke and fill to the
same alpha, but this doesn't work if stroke and fill can arbitrary alphas.
I suppose what I want is a way to just fill inside the stroke and not overlap it;
or a way to pass fill and stroke at the same time.
