 Note that eventually we must use the system cairo version by default,
 otherwise we won't be able to interoperate with other libraries that
 use it (including Gtk+). It's just that at this time upstream cairo is
 not fully ready for the SWF needs and it's little used so
 interoperation has little benefit over the burden of requiring
 everyone to build their own version of libcairo.

+As distribution packager for archlinux, it is better to have this
+patch: we have a cairo package anyways, which is easier in case bugs
+are fixed in cairo.
+The patch changes the use of internal cairo api to public api, so if
+it could be tuned a little bit, the configure switch can be made
+optional. By default it will compile against the included snapshot
+(which is broken because I remove cairo from subdirs in Makefile.am
+though), if you specify ./configure --with-cairo=installed, it will
+compile with system cairo.
