Uhm, you can get the text dimensions from Cairo. Just draw a line where
the baseline is for underlining. For strike-through use the logical
height of the font and draw the line at the center of the text? (i.e.
baseline plus half the font height to the top)

But yeah, as Bryce wrote in that other mail, Pango is the way to go for
advanced font- and text-related things.
