^^^^^ I think Scribus isn't quite as powerful. Surely you meant Emacs is a

Cairo was originally aimed at X11 (and was named Xr):
So, not OS X specific at all. In fact the OS X backend isn't as polished as
the other ones (at least in the past, don't know about the current status).
Scribus can use either cairo or Qt4 for converting vectors into raster
graphics. Earlier versions of Scribus used libart.
