No. The point of using Pango instead of cairo’s "toy" text API is to do 
better shaping. Shaping is transforming text into positioned glyphs. 
Freetype alone does not do complex shaping.

But if basic shaping is enough for you, cairo_show_text() should do the job.

You can use Pango without the rest of GTK+. That’s what we do in WeasyPrint.
