This is fantastic, I'll definitely be testing this.
I meant to do something similar, but got stuck as I'm too weak on building native libs.
I did, however collected this list of pycairo patches on github and bugzilla:
+1 on moving to distutils to build, this will make things easier for python devs, I tried not following advice to do this and it made things more difficult.
Moving forward, getting .WHL builds working for Windows would be a big plus for ease of installation,
It's probably worth mentioning @LDO's Qairah in the README, as it looks like a great choice for greenfield apps, having some nice improvements/changes to the API.

being frustrated with the state of pycairo (as a dependency of pygobject) I've
tried to improve things with this fork. If there are any questions or
suggestions please speak up!
The main reasons why you should consider this fork/release as the way forward:
* Python 2 and 3 version in the same source. It is API/ABI compatible with
both py2cairo 1.10.0 and py3cairo 1.10.0.
* Provides the same API and functionality on both Python 2 and 3. This
includes cairo.Error, cairo.Region, cairo.RectangleInt,
cairo.RecordingSurface, cairo.ImageSurface.get_data() and
* Licensed under LGPLv2.1/MPLv1.1
* Uses distutils as a build system instead of waf or autotools. Building
pycairo is a "setup.py install" away now. For example I've already
integrated it into msys2 and jhbuild locally, which just worked.
* Basic travis-ci integration: https://travis-ci.org/pygobject/pycairo
I encourage everyone using pycairo/py2cairo/py3cairo to update to this
(In case you're wondering, I've tried to contact the original maintainer but
the email bounces)
