I'd looked at cairo itself (v0.3 not cvs) and it didn't seem to have a
win32 backend, I saw mention of win32 on it's mailing list but it seemed
to be only a few days/weeks old and still with some unsettled
differences of opinion.
With X.org, Mono and Gnome using cairo it looks more "strategic" than
librsvg alone, but I wonder if librsvg would be easier for my first
"quick and dirty" get something working version?
Is MinGW required or will VC++ compile it?

Actually what I need *is* an off-screen bitmap which I have to return to
explorer as a HBITMAP, I don't get asked to draw direct to screen.
