[cairo] Multi-threaded surface drawing?

Hello! I couldn't found this answer in the usual places, so maybe someone
here can. It's possible to draw to the same surface by multiple threads? I
mean creating two contexts, one with each thread and clip it to different
regions of the surface and draw in parallel?

The idea is to reduce the total drawing time but I feel this feature could
be backend-specific and for some backend won't be really useful at all. Am I

Thank you,
