[cairo] Cairo and Panda3d

Hi all,
I am evaluating Panda3D with the general aim of doing animation. 
Does anyone here know (with some Python code) how/if I can 
produce textures by way of pyCairo -- so that I can produce textures 
in memory and not have to load from files?

My general plan is to produce a "frame" of drawing in a cairo context 
and then slurp that across (as quickly as I can) into a texture on a 
plane. A bit like playing a video, except that each frame is rendered 
before being drawn.

I am scouring the web at the moment and am in that fragile 'choose 
your toolkit poison' position where I could jump to Clutter/Pigment or 
Panda given the basic needs I have.

Hope that made sense!
