Isn't Cairo just a rendering library? AFAIK, it does not offer any kind 
of e.g. portable widget access, which is probably the most tricky thing 
to implement for AWT. Swing can be implemented in pure Java, based on 
some simple native support by AWT (open window and supply a Graphics 
object into which the content can be rendered). I don't see where Cairo 
can offer much help in that area?
