Cairo backend

Hi John,
Just pre-empting Nathan's reply, a search revealed this:
<http://www.cairographics.org/>
The reason I'm replying is to note that I'd vote for SVG support ahead of the currently X-specific Cairo. In fact I'd support WPG and WMF/EMF ahead of Cairo based on portability arguments. Yes, I'm primarily a Win32 user. Nathan may know something about how much simpler it would be to create a Cairo backend than an SVG backend which may argue against this.

I'm not familiar with it, and a quick google didn't turn up anything
that looked relevant. Do you have a link?

Cairo is intended to have an svg backend because people want to be able to screenshot ->svg and print->svg and so on. Also, cairo is an immediate mode system, suitable for interactive things, svg isn't. Having said that, either would be good, and svg would have greater value at the moment (cairo will be fast, but it ain't at the moment).
