The API is missing the stream functions. JPEG API has previously been
proposed [1]. Behdad's reply [2] summarizes the reason the patches were

  "PNG support is cairo's way to import and export images, and it

  format. Anything else should be implemented on top of other cairo
  API.  It's like the toy text api."
