Yes, there will be packages for Cairo for every distribution we support
(In fact, Duncan has already announced these).

Maybe Cairo should only be a dependency on System.Drawing.dll, and we
could split up the libraries some day, but right now it is now worth the
pain to do it.   

This is mostly a distribution issue, for users of Mono on Linux, we will
certainly take care of things, and we will work with distributions to
get the right level of granularity for the Mono packages.
