Did you put this into Launchpad so that we can track it?
Also, I believe that GNOME 2.22 is expecting Cairo 1.6, so it should get
into the major distros along with the new GNOME. It means that for most
users, they'll have Cairo 1.6 with the next release of their distro.
(it also means that Print to PDF will be much more useful with the next
GNOME release ;)
