[cairo] cairocffi and GDK-PixBuf for decoding JPEG and other image formats

A long-standing feature request on cairo has been the ability to decode
JPEG and other image formats, just like
cairo_image_surface_create_from_png() does for PNG.
The response has been that this does not belong in cairo itself.
GDK-PixBuf can load many image formats, but uses a different internal
format for pixel data. I just added some integration code in cairocffi,
to wrap GDK-PixBuf and do the pixel conversion:
(cairocffi is a drop-in alternative to pycairo.)
Happy image decoding!
