There are fundamental differences between Cairo and XCB.
XCB, as its name implies, is supposed to be as simple a
Protocol binding API as we can figure out how to make it in
a performant fashion. I am willing, at the end of the day,
to subject users to arbitrary inconvenience to avoid that
Inconveniences in using XCB are supposed to be papered over
by building infrastructure atop it, so that we retain the
strong separation between protocol binding and affordances.
I guess we haven't figured out the perfect way to do that in
this case, but I'm pretty sure we can.
