[cairo] cairo+DevIL ?

In a January 2007 posting
Vlad suggested that DevIL
would make a good backend for rendering other bitmap formats (gif, jpeg, 
tga, ...) from cairo.

Is this still the best-practice recommendation?   Is there any sample 
code out there?

I've made an initial attempt to bind the two together.  The problem I'm 
having at the moment
is that the in-memory data formats seem to be incompatible:

Do I really have to byte-twiddle the image data just to transfer between 
these two fine libraries?
