The X Render library provides a very low-level way of drawing things

systems), and actually designed to be used by application authors to
draw things is the cairo graphics library. As of GTK+ 2.8, GTK+
provides easy access to draw with cairo via functions such as

If there's something that Render allows that you're not able to do
with cairo, then I would be interested in hearing about that.

As for Composite, I'm not sure what kind of wrapping you are imagining
