Hi Jasper,

I'm not arguing against developing glue code for cairo. In fact my
specific problem is exactly a missing access to an enum type.

My knowledge on bindings internals is limited, but I think exposing
the GBoxed wrappers can also help the lifetime management of the
underlying types, and I bet memory leaks are the n.1 problems in
language bindings.
