I also meant to say that apart from libcairo-ocaml-dev I've never

"One of our programming maxims is "make illegal states unrepresentable"
by which we mean that if a given collection of values constitute an
error, then it is better to arrange for that collection of values to be
impossible to represent within the constraints of the type system."
