Sounds good, but yeah I've been using the xcairo device. It sounds
like we need a new "quartzcario" device (or maybe the shorter
"qcairo" name would be better). I don't think we'd ever have a
"qtcairo" driver, so there shouldn't be too much confusion.
FWIW, MacPorts can install cairo with support for the quartz surface
(by enabling the "quartz" variant)...
$ grep CAIRO_HAS_QUARTZ_SURFACE /opt/local/include/cairo/cairo-
#define CAIRO_HAS_QUARTZ_SURFACE 1
I don't know enough about mac development to drive this effort, but
I'd be happy to test and/or help out!
