Meld fails to start with error: "Meld requires pycairo 1.15 or higher." after upgrade to testing/cairo 1.17.8-1.

A rebuild of python-cairo 1.23.0-2 fixes the issue. (A downgrade to extra/cairo 1.17.6-2 fixes the issue as well)

Additional info:
* meld: 3.22.0-1
* cairo: testing/1.17.8-1
* python-cairo: 1.23.0-2

Steps to reproduce:
* Install meld and testing/cairo 1.17.8-1
* Start meld (will show the error either in a dialog-box or in the cli.
