The goal for cairo is to integrated text into the rendering API just like 
PostScript/PDF do -- you should be able to convert glyphs into paths and 
then stroke/fill them at will.  I'm hoping to get a chance to work on the 
X and PS implementations of this in the next month or so; of course, if 
someone else got started first...
