[cairo] Tangential glyph enlargement

I'm using cairo (and freetype) to output some text, in bigger letters,
and allowing effects like stroked outline + different fill color, etc.
One parameter would then allow to draw the glyph a little bit bigger or
smaller (and overlay this with itself, but unchanged size).
But just using a bigger font_size for that is not what's really wanted.
Strictly speaking, the glyph has to be "tangentially enlarged" (or shrunk).
I'm currently using Cairo::Context::glyph_path().
Is this possible/advisable to do with cairo (say, Cairo::Path), or
should I try to grab the data from freetype and feed cairo with the
Or is there still a better way?
