Very interesting!  Just Cairo, or also on the foundation of the rest of GTK+?  
What seems attractive and promising about GTK to you, 
to be worth the trouble of porting MrEd?

There seem to be several efforts underway to implement a GUI 
library for Scheme on the basis of GTK.   Ypsilon, for example, 
seems to have a fairly complete binding.

Have you considered pooling your efforts?

p.s. As a Mac user, I wonder how long it will take for GTK+ 
to mature on the Mac platform.  I haven't had much luck getting
 GTK+ applications to compile, let alone run.
