How about having independent repos for:
 - cairo (implementation exposing only official public functions)
 - cairo debug/boilerplate (special public functions for
instrumentation of public cairo; might become official and/or die as
time goes on)
 - cairo utilities
 - cairo performance suite
 - cairo test suite

cairo perf and test would probably depend on special and utilities.
Part of the split is already done (cairo-traces) and there has been
work towards making it complete (observer and script in 1.12).
I think it would both make cairo distributions smaller and promptly
point out hacks and/or unclean parts.

Any objections to aiming towards this for 1.14?
