AFAIUI you want the coordinate-transformation to apply also to any 
input-events your DrawinArea receives?
This is not handled by cairo.
Any transformation you set in cairo only applies to outputs you make. 
You'll have to transform the input coordinates yourself.
I've seen cairo_user_to_device() and cairo_device_to_user() in the C 
API, which could be of help to you; there are certainly Python bindings 
for them.
