Well, Cairo is not just a checkbox that you can check and make everyone
happy; unless the entire output is Cairo, you cannot easily print the
content with high quality vector graphics.  You can't convert OpenGL
graphics to PS or PDF...

But I want to make clear that it is just a general comment I make about
Clutter.  In this specific case, gnome-games, it doesn't apply; I don't
think people will care much about high quality printing of a chess
game :)
