Ah, I think you misunderstood my question.. If all I wanted was to
calculate extents, I could use plain Pango too.
What I want to do is paint a string to a surface the same size as the
text's logical extents -- without doing the text layouting twice (once
to calculate the extents, once to paint). Since I cannot change the
target image size after it is set, or import an existing Pango layout
into Cairo, I wondered whether anyone on this list would know of a method.
