This was an idea I had as well.

Ah, but I'd put this one in the Pro list. It'd be odd now, since we
don't have subpixel geometry yet. But subpixel geometry is definitely
something I've wanted cairo to be able to do eventually.

There are definitely the weird problems that crop up with destination
alpha, but we already have that with subpixel text.

And if there are challenges that are unique to geometry as opposed to
text, then if nothing else, this is something I want to play with and
learn more about.
