[cairo] Multithreading questions

I would like to use cairo's image backend in a highly scalable multi-threaded 

I searched arround for documentation regarding threading, but found not really 
answers to my questions:

- How scalable is Cairo? When is lockning done on which data?

- How do I have to take care of what? May I pass surfaces from one thread to 
Do I have to do some locking by my own?

- Does cairo use per-thread or static datastructures, which need to be taken 
special care?

Thanks you, Thomas
