this is an interesting topic.

How is this seen from licensing point of view?  I hesitate to use
Cairo in a project because L-GPL forces me to _not_ link statically
and to supply anybody who wants them with object files.

Did i miss something regarding the license?  I'd be glad to be able
to use Cairo in a project and link it statically without getting into
trouble afterwards.

Best regards,
