As already discussed, for higher-level tasks you'll be better of going
through a higher-level library such as cairo.

cairo is not listed proeminently as an X component, because it also
works on non-X systems but it is a core library for anything doing GUI
stuff under X nowadays (with the exception of QT apps, but QT has a
wider scope than cairo)
