Nice offer! If I understand it correctly though, the answer is that
Cairo doesn't do line-wrapping or word-breaking itself and requires
the caller to position all glyphs [1]. You can see that the API
available targets lower level use [2].

1. Other than the toy text API, which is just what it says: a toy. :)
