so..  is the proposal that you would pass a cairo_surface_t in the  
GstBuffer (GstVideoBuffer?)  Or would you continue to pass the buffer  
as just a byte ptr?

I'm curious if the cairo dependency would only be for elements that  
are touching pixels?  Or would platforms that have all the heavy  
lifting done on some sorts of hardware and/or coprocessor(s) also  
inherit this dependency?
