I don't think using Cairo for this is a good idea as you're gonna miss
a lot of features. What might be useful - as you said - is not doing
font rendering at all.

Pango is only used in the TextField flash object, so if you rip out
all of the code relating to it, you should be ready to go. It's
probably not even hard.
But I don't know of anyone that did it before, nor am I very
interested in it. And that is because I don't think using Pango is a
problem. After all it's just a small library that does lots of useful
