Maybe not for the application as shown, but it's easy to imagine an
application that renders enough different items it blows any
reasonable generic caching mechanism. Meanwhile a specific caching
mechanism for just that application can directly optimize the cases it
knows it will be using.
And of course I'm not saying that it would be any faster; merely that
it might be worth comparing. After all, if you can't get it fast
enough with a cached image surface, would you really expect to be able
to hit the desired performance with cached glyphs, no matter how
appropriate the caching algorithm?
