Hello Donn,

(Please put me in the `to` field next time.)

I'm a member of wxPython-users and I asked them, but there was no response, so 
I'm assuming they don't know of anything.

I think you're right that pyCairo is not related to wxPython. But the most 
important thing for me to know is whether someone already battle-tested their 
combination. (i.e. Made a real-world app that relies on wxcairo.)

Given the lack of response I'm starting to think that there's no such thing.
