Thanks for these nice explanations! (Btw, I wrote to the mailing list
and you answered only to me.)

That's fine. I already wondered how to set the data when using
_new_with_size(), but I didn't find cogl_texture_set_region().

That would be lovely.
So if I want to use Cogl only for texture slicing, would it work if I
just create CoglMetaTextures instead of GL textures, and do drawing in
the callback from cogl_meta_texture_foreach_in_region? (I don't need
repeated texturing, every texture is drawn just once.)
cogl_texture_get_gl_texture() is in cogl-texture.h, but not in the
I didn't find a public API for CoglTexture->set_filters. Did I miss it,
if not would it make sense for you to add one? Or should I use
glTexParameter() in the foreach callback?
