 I am indeed referring to the C# wrapper of cairo. Gtk# builds a .so and .dll
for cairo, which AFAICS can be used independently from the rest of Gtk#, and
which AFAICS is only derived from sources that carry a MIT license (i.e.,
everything in the cairo/ directory).

 (cairo itself is still LGPLv2+, of course. However, since this is a different
shared library, the cairo# .dll and .so could be used with a
differently-licensed implementation of the cairo ABI).
